    Hello all,

    when i do something at control panel, which uses Let's Encrypt - i get this message, where i am not sure if it is ok to ignore or it need to be fixed?

    Mo 22. Jul 14:04:03 CEST 2019 You are running with an old copy of letsencrypt-auto that does not receive updates, and is less reliable than more recent versions. The letsencrypt client has also been renamed to Certbot. We recommend upgrading to the latest certbot-auto script, or using native OS packages.

    I think it should be ok to ignore them.

    What is the version of Let's Encrypt or certbot on that host?
    If certbot comes with the OS and is updated from the OS, then I agree with @ahrasis, it is OK. If, however, you have installed certbot manually from somewhere else and thus it is not updated automatically, then you should check what version of certob you are running and if it is indeed too old.

    That is just a mere info or warning, not real issues or errors, thus you need not be worried. If you keep attending all warnings like this, you'll be easily bought down unnecessarily. So far as the posted logs / messages are concerned, your certbot version is working fine. So my advise, only fix / update when it failed to work.
