update-rc.d tryton defaults


The way is

sudo pip3 install trytond --upgrade

sudo pip3 install tryton --upgrade

or in short

sudo pip install [package_name] -U

sudo will ask to enter your root password to confirm the action.

If you do not have a root password (if you are not the admin) you should probably work with virtualenv and then you should drop the sudo :

pip install [package_name] --upgrade

Install certbot

On Ubuntu systems, the Certbot team maintains a PPA. You can add it to your list of repositories and install Certbot by running the following commands.

$ sudo apt-get update
$ sudo apt-get install software-properties-common
$ sudo add-apt-repository universe
$ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:certbot/certbot
$ sudo apt-get update
$ sudo apt-get install python-certbot-nginx 
Certbot's DNS plugins are also available for your system which can be used to automate obtaining a wildcard certificate from Let's Encrypt's ACMEv2 server. To use one of these plugins, you must have configured DNS for the domain you want to obtain a certificate for with a DNS provider that Certbot has a plugin for. A list of these plugins and more information about using them can be found here. To install one of these plugins, run the installation command above but replace python-certbot-nginx with the name of the DNS plugin you want to install.

Get Started
Certbot has an Nginx plugin, which is supported on many platforms, and automates certificate installation.

$ sudo certbot --nginx
Running this command will get a certificate for you and have Certbot edit your Nginx configuration automatically to serve it. If you're feeling more conservative and would like to make the changes to your Nginx configuration by hand, you can use the certonly subcommand:

$ sudo certbot --nginx certonly

sudo apt-get autoremove
sudo apt-get --purge remove && sudo apt-get autoclean
sudo apt-get -f install
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade && sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
sudo dpkg-reconfigure -a
sudo dpkg --configure -a
