Hello all,
I am getting this error notification.

cPanel & WHM cannot update due to insufficient disk space in the staging directory, '/usr/local/cpanel'. The system requires 3 GB to update; this directory only has 2.61 GB available. The system failed to find a new staging directory with enough space to update. You can either clear enough disk space or select a new staging directory with enough disk space at Update Preferences interface.

I had been receiving this notification when my version was 11.62.0.16, but I ignored the message. But Since today, I started getting this message. According to the notification, my cPanel version would be 11.62.0.15. But it is not.

The interesting part is at the top of WHM; I could see WHM 62.0 (build 17).
Under Update Preferences, it shows
Installed Version:62.0.17 Current Tier: stable.
I can see there are an 8+ GB available in Disk Usage section.

But still, I am getting this update blocker message.

Hello,

Try to make some free space on your server and run upcp again on your server. Check /var/log directory and remove old logs from your server.

Hello,

The output you provided suggests you have enough space to complete the cPanel update. Does the update proceed when running the "/scripts/upcp --force" command?

Thank you.
