Error setting up Let's Encrypt using debian 9

Hi Everyone,

I have a problem installing Let’s Encrypt on Debian 9 - Apache server:

here’s my error code:

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/bin/certbot", line 11, in <module>
    load_entry_point('certbot==0.10.2', 'console_scripts', 'certbot')()
  File "/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/pkg_resources/__init__.py", line 561, in load_entry_point
    return get_distribution(dist).load_entry_point(group, name)
  File "/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/pkg_resources/__init__.py", line 2631, in load_entry_point
    return ep.load()
  File "/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/pkg_resources/__init__.py", line 2291, in load
    return self.resolve()
  File "/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/pkg_resources/__init__.py", line 2297, in resolve
    module = __import__(self.module_name, fromlist=['__name__'], level=0)

Hope you can help me.

Doing some digging into your error message turned up a lot of results where this error was prompted due to pyopenssl being missing. This can be installed with sudo apt-get update; sudo apt-get install pyopenssl but I am a bit concerned since LetsEncrypt has a pretty good automatic installer which should have addressed this. Are you following a particular guide in your installation and configuration of LetsEncrypt?
