The best way around this is to install the 'pew' Python virtual environment
manager and create a Python 3 virtualenv into which you install certbot.

As a general practice, I avoid using system Python on any system under my
control.  I also do not pip install much for the system instance of the language.
Pew/Virtualenvs give me a clean way to manage all that without soiling the base
installation with odd additions and updates.
