The fundamental issue is a lack of understanding of what you are trying to achieve.

Renewing certificates != upgrading rpms

Classic http://xyproblem.info/

So you hadn't kept up with progress (if you want to administer a server you need to keep abreast of changes... This was discussed here before long ago) and your certs failed to update, so rather than understand the issue which was change to API 2 and re-generate your certs with 'dehydrated -c -x' (you should really enable test mode first to check) which would take about 2 minutes, you decided to remove the whole thing.

No, cert date periods are not decided by us so we can't change that. Again, go read why.  (If you really want longer periods you'll probably need to buy a certificate).

But a cronjob has taken the pain of renewal away and has been renewing them automagically since you first installed. So it is a non issue.

It just couldn't any more due to the API change.

Next time read thoroughly before attempting a solution, and if you are not sure then ask before trying.

I think we are having a major communications failure here  :sad:
Read all of what I have posted in the last post.
I even gave you a link to where to start following the wiki.
ok, I didn't explicitely state not to follow the entire wiki.

got to here:

follow the wiki from here
https://wiki.koozali.org/Letsencrypt#V2_API  scroll down to -> "For creating a new certificate or updating a V2 set to 2"
DO NOT ENABLE V1 API ONLY V2 API


Then follow the enable test mode and the test should now work. If not, stop and report back.
If the test works ok, then continue to follow the wiki to enable production mode.

DO NOT TRY AND REINSTALL THE CONTRIB

Have you read the test of the wiki where it says:

"Enable Production Mode"

Because from your comment above you are still in test mode.

You don't have to renew it next year, it checks automatically once a week and if less than 30 days are left to expiry it auto renews it.
YOU DON'T HAVE TO TOUCH ANYTHING.
LEAVE YOUR HANDS IN YOUR POCKETS.  :D

Admin or whoever the email is configured to in the config

config show letsencrypt
letsencrypt=service
    ACCEPT_TERMS=yes
    API=2
    configure=none
    email=admin@domain1.com
    hookScript=disabled
    keysize=NUMBER
    signal-event=console-save
    status=test

should get an email every week (friday I think) saying it has either checked the certificate is still valid or that it has renewed it for you.

If the email configured above isn't your email address (or the server admin's email address) change it so that it is. correct. If you don't know how then please ask how to change it.

Did you configure the email address and did you get an auto email this morning (depending upon your timezone) reporting that an update to your letsencrypt certificate was attempted?
If not sort out the email address and see what happens next friday. Not much point having an automated process that you don't avail yourself of a status update. Better to sort it now than wait for a surprise in 3 months time.

Yeah good point.. I forgot about it sadly... To much going on here in my neck of the woods....... No it appears I did not get an email saying an attempt was made to upgrade lets encrypt. I have it programmed for admin@domain1.com its where I got the message that it was expiring.

Do I just run this code to check to make sure its programmed correctly??

config show letsencrypt
letsencrypt=service
    ACCEPT_TERMS=yes
    API=2
    configure=none
    email=admin@domain1.com
    hookScript=disabled
    keysize=NUMBER
    signal-event=console-save
    status=test

Thanks
