Hi there,

Is this critical? Is possible to fix?
Thanks.

this is an OpenVZ server so why are you trying to install a kernel there is none


Code:
rpm -Uvh --nodeps  http://mirror.centos.org/centos-6/6.8/updates/x86_64/Packages/util-linux-ng-2.17.2-12.24.el6_8.1.x86_64.rpm

yum update
should fix you up

Hi there,

since it's a bug, maybe will be fixed soon, so I dont need to act? I dont feel comfortable to install Linux RPMs manually, I don't have enough knowledge to fix things like this if get broken. The affected server has +100 websites running and I'm afraid to break the server(s). Any considerations?

Thank you.

Hello,

You may also want to report the issue to your VPS hosting provider if you are not running the hardware node yourself.

Thank you.

Hello.

cPanel, for this bug, what do you advise?. We wait to solve the problem or update (yum update --skip-broken -y).

What is better?

Hello @jvgn,

This is a bug with the OS, so you may want to consult with your VPS hosting provider for additional assistance. In the meantime, you could use the following command to update your packages:

Code:
yum update --skip-broken -y
Thank you.

RedHat said it's correct with Red Hat Customer Portal but not for me ...

Hello,
I manage couple OpenVZ cPanel servers with kernel:
Linux myhostname.com 2.6.32-042stab120.16 #1 SMP Tue Dec 13 20:58:28 MSK 2016 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux​

Also concerned about cPanel update emails:
[2017-02-11 21:30:17 +0100] [20095] Error: Package: util-linux-ng-2.17.2-12.24.el6_8.1.x86_64 (updates)
[2017-02-11 21:30:17 +0100] [20095] You could try using --skip-broken to work around the problem​

I logged into the server via ssh and just run yum update. I did not even had to use --skip-broken option.
All packages is updated. Package util-linux-ng also with no problem.
