Question

I can't renew certificates with letsencrypt certificates for my HTTPS ubuntu 16.04.

Hi!

I have tried to renew certificates and it just doesn’t seem to work. When I type in the command: sudo certbot renew I get

The following error was encountered: [Errno 13] Permission denied: ‘/var/log/letsencrypt/.certbot.lock’ If running as non-root, set --config-dir, --work-dir, and --logs-dir to writeable paths. muna@Private-Server-Basic:~$ sudo letsencrypt renew Saving debug log to /var/log/letsencrypt/letsencrypt.log


Processing /etc/letsencrypt/renewal/www.coffeeinnleyton.co.uk.conf

Renewal configuration file /etc/letsencrypt/renewal/www.coffeeinnleyton.co.uk.conf produced an unexpected error: ‘Namespace’ object has no attribute ‘apache_enmod’. Skipping.


Processing /etc/letsencrypt/renewal/www.ionlinemarketing.co.uk.conf

Renewal configuration file /etc/letsencrypt/renewal/www.ionlinemarketing.co.uk.conf produced an unexpected error: ‘Namespace’ object has no attribute ‘apache_enmod’. Skipping.

No renewals were attempted.

Additionally, the following renewal configuration files were invalid: /etc/letsencrypt/renewal/www.coffeeinnleyton.co.uk.conf (parsefail) /etc/letsencrypt/renewal/www.ionlinemarketing.co.uk.conf (parsefail) 0 renew failure(s), 2 parse failure(s)

Any help would be appreciated! Thanks in advance

I am in a similar situation…ubuntu 16 First, my site was not showing not secure although letsencrypt certificate was valid. So I tried reinstalling certbot. I get an error apache plugin is not working…would love to uninstall letsencrypt and reinstall…any idea how I uninstall?

Hi @Muntansir

That’s very strange errors indeed. Can you run this sudo certbot --version

It might be easier to remove everything Let’s Encrypt and get new certificates again.
