@lindsm Thanks for the heads-up! I updated the package according to the new's in the repository. Plus, I added a couple of entries to my watch-list so that I will hopefully be able to respond quicker next time when upstream introduces these kinds of changes.

P.S. the package was actually missing another dependency as well and quite a few of the previous dependencies could be dropped. Overall your analysis though is correct.

There hasn't been any comments on this in a while, so not sure if this is package is still active. But I wanted to share my install experiences with this recently. If there is a more appropriate place, or I need to provide more info, by all means, let me know.

I'm using Garuda linux, output of lsb_release -a;

Distributor ID: Garuda
Description:    Garuda Linux
Release:    Soaring
Codename:   n/a

Error Message when running certbot --help;

  File "/usr/lib/python3.9/importlib/", line 77, in load
    module = import_module('module'))
  File "/usr/lib/python3.9/importlib/", line 127, in import_module

    import josepy as jose
ModuleNotFoundError: No module named 'josepy'

Using pyenv, but defaulted to system python. Output of python --version && which python;

Python 3.9.1

Installing josepy fixed it, cmd performed pip3 install josepy;

certbot --version
certbot 1.13.0.dev0

And just because I'm new to arch linux and linux as a desktop in general, here is the version I installed;

aur/certbot-git 1.0.0.r23.gceea41c1e-1 (+26 0.00) (Installed: 1.12.0.r19.g0f3f07b5c-1)
    A tool to automatically receive and install X.509 certificates to enable TLS on servers. The client will interoperate with the Let’s Encrypt CA which will be issuing browser-trusted certificates for free.

I wanted to make an issue or a MR, but not sure how to do either. Please let me know if there is some place I could do such a thing. Not really knowing anything about package building for arch, I assume I could just edit PKGBUILD and add josepy to this block, like so;

depends=('ca-certificates' 'python-acme-git' 'python-configargparse' 'python-configobj'
        'python-cryptography' 'python-pyopenssl' 'python-mock' 'python-parsedatetime'
        'python-psutil' 'python-pyrfc3339' 'python-pythondialog' 'python-pytz'
        'python-requests' 'python-setuptools' 'python-six' 'python-zope-component'
        'python-zope-interface' 'python-josepe')

Hopefully all my markdown works :D

@yan12125 Thanks for the hint. I guess there is no good reason to stick to python2. I updated the packages accordingly.

yan12125 commented on 2017-06-09 06:40 (UTC)

The official package has moved from Python 2 to Python 3. [1] How about doing the same for this package? [1]

@fordprefect Thanks for the hint, done.

fordprefect commented on 2017-05-07 21:45 (UTC)

please change upstream url from to developement and maintenance has shifted to the eff.

Please switch to the certbot-git package [1]! Let’s Encrypt is in the transition of being renamed to (probably) certbot. Although until now (2016-04-18) there is no new version available with this name, it is still already being used at the master branch of the git project [2]. The change was announced a couple of weeks ago at their blog [3] unfortunately the sudden rename at github is not mentioned there. Since this package fetches the last revision from github it is already affected by this name change. The new package [1] is a complete redesign and should be much more lightweight. Furthermore I have splitted the package into several small one, to give you more control over which plugins or helpers you actually want to use. As always you can track any progress at my github repo [4]. [1] [2] [3] [4]

@gabx I am still pretty cautious about adding a service and timer file for this program since it is not contained in the github repo itself and would therefore require a patch for a package which is just working fine. The developers are already aware of this issue [0] and currently there is no real need for it because the certificates are valid for 3 months. I believe that this should be added upstream I am currently against fixing it down the line since I assume it to be implemented within the validity of your first certificate. [0]

gabx commented on 2015-12-16 18:02 (UTC)

FYI, it is possible to create a service + timer file to renew automatically the certificates using webroot.
