Description K J Petrie 2018-06-14 19:39:46 UTC
If security/certbot and its dependencies are compiled against security/libressl, renewal of certificates issued since late March by Let's Encrypt fails with the message:
"The <ObjectIdentifier(oid=, name=Unknown OID)> extension is invalid and can’t be parsed. Skipping.
All renewal attempts failed. The following certs could not be renewed:"

This is caused by Let's Encrypt adding an extension to the certificate which is not recognised by LibreSSL.

To reproduce:

ensure LibreSSL is in use for certbot's dependencies and enter:

"certbot renew --dry-run".
