Deyhdrated needs update


while registerning or applying for a LE certificate with dehydrated, I’m getting this error:

“type”: “urn:ietf:params:acme:error:malformed”,
“detail”: “Malformed account ID in KeyID header URL: “””,
“status”: 400

It seems to be an issue with the current v2 API of Let’s Encrypt and more specific with dehydrated, see

This means that the package dehydrated probably needs an update.

IPFire package is on version 0.6.5, on git it still reads 0.6.5, but obviously a patch for this issue has been checked in. I compared the script in /usr/bin/dehydrated with the code in git , at least I tried to do so, and noticed a difference. Maybe the author did not change the version string in git/code?

To test further, I’ve downloaded the current script from github and rerun the cert generation which finished OK afterwards.

So, maybe another one could check the code and the package in IPFire?



you should report bugs to the bug tracker. This is a support forum and therefore not suitable to track bugs.
