My domain is: [redacted]
I ran this command: /usr/local/bin/certbot-auto --apache
It produced this output:

My web server is (include version): apache
The operating system my web server runs on is (include version): Debian 6 (Squeeze) 64-bit
My hosting provider, if applicable, is:
I can login to a root shell on my machine (yes or no, or I don’t know): yes
I’m using a control panel to manage my site (no, or provide the name and version of the control panel): no
The version of my client is (e.g. output of
certbot --version or
certbot-auto --version if you’re using Certbot): i do not have certbot yet, the error occurs when i try to run above command
I have read around a bit in the forums and I reckon our packages are outdated because our Debian is so outdated. However, since it is a live server, I do not want to risk uninstalling and reinstalling them for fear something goes wrong and i break the site. Also, so far i have not dared answering “yes” to the warning message because i am unsure what i risk when installing packages without verification.
At the moment it is not an option to update our server’s OS. Is there a way to still get certbot to issue a certificate (other than doing it manually every 90 days)? Or am i out of luck?
