Unable to renew: "Unable to meet CA SCT embedding requirements"


#1

I’m running Ubuntu 16.04 with a number of customer domains. Renewal ist automatic by running ‘letsencrypt renew’.

Today I got this back from cron:

11 renew failure(s), 0 parse failure(s)

All of the domains belong to one single customer.

I have no idea what caused this, I don’t understand the error messages. Is this a problem on my side or is LetsEncrypt broken now? This exact setup is running successfully for about a year and many other domains.

Google has never seen this error mesage before so I’m asking here.

It was probably related to this incident earlier today: https://letsencrypt.status.io/pages/incident/55957a99e800baa4470002da/5b5266df6e646c425d1e77c1

If you’re still experiencing the issue, let us know, but otherwise, Certbot will/would have just tried again 12 hours later and succeeded.

Thank you. I have started my script again and it didn’t produce any errors.


#4

Hi, I’m experiencing the same issue right now. Should I also try later? What is the root cause?
