Description:

Python software that relies on `python-jsonpickle` fails if `python-importlib-metadata` is not installed

Steps to reproduce:

1. Install `certbot` and `certbot-dns-digitalocean`
2. Run `certbot`

The result is

```
An unexpected error occurred:
pkg_resources.DistributionNotFound: The 'importlib_metadata' distribution was not found and is required by jsonpickle
Please see the logfile '/tmp/tmpv5anntws/log' for more details.
```
