Virtualmin CLI: EC Cert Generation Fails

OS type and version Ubuntu Server 22.04.4 (GNU/Linux 5.15.0-101-generic x86_64)
Webmin version 2.105
Virtualmin version 7.9.0 Pro
Related packages certbot 1.21.0-1build1

Are there known issues generating EC certificates via CLI command?

Firing this command:

virtualmin generate-letsencrypt-cert --domain EXAMPLE.COM --renew --ec --validate-first

…throws this line: “The Let’s Encrypt client on your system does not support EC certificates”


It works for me on Debian 12, though it’s worth noting that Debian 12 comes with certbot 2.1.0 installed. Perhaps you should avoid requesting EC certificates; RSA works just fine!

I do have RSAs in place but was playing on a test system where I figured that this won’t work with the current lineup.
