Warning when parsing configuration file

I can renew and use certbot without problems (thanks). I just want to get rid of the warning.
I saw a similar topic, but that got closed before resolution.

My domain is:

I ran this command:
certbot certificates

It produced this output:
Attempting to parse the version 0.16.0 renewal configuration file found at with version 0.15.0 of Certbot. This might not work.
… plus the list of existing certificates.

My web server is (include version):
Apache/2.4.23 (Linux/SUSE)

The operating system my web server runs on is (include version):
OpenSUSE Leap 42.3

I can login to a root shell on my machine (yes or no, or I don’t know):

EDIT: corrected the domain name.

Hi @savedario,

This usually happens because you have both certbot-auto and certbot installed (via a direct download from EFF’s site and via an OS package manager). The version in the OS package manager will typically be much older. If you’ve previously used certbot-auto, you should probably continue using it in the future.

Hi @schoen,
Yes, but after the first installation back in March, I don’t recall installing again from EFF… I can see that:

# rpm -qa | grep certbot

and of course:

# certbot --version
certbot 0.15.0

I doubt that the the package manager downgraded without me noticing.
And the warning was not there the last time I renewed (by hand) the certificate since it is for a server where I cannot install certbot, so I never used certbot-auto here.

You could try locate certbot-auto to be sure.
