Letsencrypt UnicodeDecodeError: ‘utf-8’ codec can’t decode byte 0xfc in positio

Filed under: Linux — Tags: , , , — admin @ 12:16 pm

Well today I was trying to issue a ssl on a old server and find this

File “/opt/eff.org/certbot/venv/lib64/python3.4/site-packages/augeas.py”, line 147, in get
return dec(value.value)
File “/opt/eff.org/certbot/venv/lib64/python3.4/site-packages/augeas.py”, line 65, in dec
return st.decode(AUGENC)
UnicodeDecodeError: ‘utf-8’ codec can’t decode byte 0xfc in position 15: invalid start byte
Please see the logfiles in /var/log/letsencrypt for more details.

A short workaround was to modify the

“/opt/eff.org/certbot/venv/lib64/python3.4/site-packages/augeas.py”

the 65 line was something

return st.encode(AUGENC)

with

return st.decode(AUGENC, ‘ignore’)

It worked to get a new certificate .
