While installing some Certbot packages I stumbled upon the No package python3-certbot-nginx available. error. Let’s take a look.

Prerequisites

  • Certbot
  • sudo privileges

Solution

Step 1. If you face the issue on the RHEL-based OS, it means that you don’t have python3 on the machine. One solution is to install Python 3 or use Python 2.

sudo yum install certbot python-certbot-nginx

Step 2. It’s pretty much the same about Debian-based OS. If you face the opposite issue: No package python-certbot-nginx available. then it means that python2 is no longer supported on that OS, and you should use Python 3.

sudo apt-get install python3-certbot-nginx
