Version conflict centos 7

I reviewed the various “version conflict” threads. I’ve done the “wheel tools” update as suggested and it ran without error.

python -m pip install --upgrade pip setuptools wheel

I also tried deleting the /opt/ directory, though I now have that directory present since I did a restore from an image. I have done a yum remove certbot then yum install certbot. Clearly something isn’t being removed and or updated.

I am on Digital Ocean and use the following script, well when certbot worked. :wink:

certbot certonly --dns-digitalocean --dns-digitalocean-credentials /etc/letsencrypt/digitalocean/credentials.ini --dns-digitalocean-propagation-seconds 60 -d

I had at one time set up certbot from git when the centos rev didn’t work. But I believe (hope!) I ran it in the virtual mode so it didn’t effect the installed files.

Take an inventory of your system.

rpm -qa | grep -E "(certbot|letsencrypt|acme)"
pip list | grep -E "(certbot|letsencrypt|acme)"

From there, hopefully you can clean it up.

I cleaning it up with pip. I updated the certs for a low traffic website and will check it out. The digital ocean plugin seems not to be needed anymore. This is kind of confusing since it used a Digital Ocean token. I just ran certbot without arguments, then selected the domains.

Here is the pip removal, which might be useful for someone else.

pip list | grep -E "(certbot|letsencrypt|acme)"
acme                             0.24.0 
certbot                          0.24.0 
certbot-dns-digitalocean         0.21.0 
certbot-nginx                    0.24.0

Thanks for your help. I’m closing this thread. I have a cert problem, but it doesn’t seem to be related to certbot.
