In this article, I will show how you can solve the certbot renew issue in Amazon Linux 1. In amazon Linux these issues very frequently that, when we try to renew the SSL certificate using Certbot, then we see an error like this.
To solve the issue then please run these commands.
pip install cryptography cd /opt/eff.org/certbot/venv/lib64/python2.7 mv site-packages site-packages.sav ln -s dist-packages/ site-packages
After that run your command to create SSL certificate
sudo /home/ec2-user/certbot-auto --debug --apache
This has worked for me. It will solve your issue as well.
