Dear,

I can't update cPanel-WHM to newer version. It is hanged up since last 1 months. I am getting daily the following email (also see the attachment screenshot):

Code:
The cPanel & WHM update process is non-responsive and will be terminated.
The system ran the “/usr/local/cpanel/scripts/upcp” script as PID “27743” for longer than 6 hours. The system will terminate this process and run the script again.

Update log preview:
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
=> Log opened from /usr/local/cpanel/scripts/upcp (23951) at Mon Nov 30 03:37:01 2015
[2015-11-30 03:37:01 -0500] W previous PID (27743) has been running more than 6 hours. Killing processes.
This notice was generated on “Monday, November 30, 2015” at “8:37:01 AM UTC”.
See the update process screenshot too from WHM control panel.

What can I do now? Do I need to use "Graceful Server Reboot"? Will this solve it?
If I use "Graceful Server Reboot" then will the server run automatically with all services as a live server (without any manual task)?

Please help.

Hello,

Yes, You can reboot your server using "Graceful Server Reboot" options of WHM, But I will suggest you please login your server and check what going on the server. You can update here following command output so that we can assist you on this.

Code:
df -h
df -i
The following command will display the log files in order from oldest to newest, Check new file and update here last logs from that file.

Code:
/bin/ls -Altr /var/cpanel/updatelogs[CODE]

Thank for reply 24x7server.

If I use "Graceful Server Reboot" then will the server start automatically with all services running (that means back to live working web server)? Or do I have to do more thing to run the server?

Here is the output you asked:

Hello :),

Yes, You can restart your server using " Graceful Server Reboot" Options. Once your reboot it your server will be reboot and all services will be online after server reboot. There is no need to restart any service manually on the server.

Hello :)

You should not have to reboot the server to troubleshoot the issue. Could you verify if your server is under high load or high disk I/O during the cPanel update process? This thread can help you investigate the issue:

Thank you.

Could you confirm if the issue still persists when forcing an update of cPanel via the "/scripts/upcp --force" command?

Thank you.

@cPanelMichael I tried that command and see the result bellow:

Code:
# /scripts/upcp --force

cPanel Update (upcp) is already running. Please wait for the previous upcp (pid 20280) to complete, then try again. You can use the command 'ps --pid 20280' to check if the process is running. You may wish to use '--force'

You can use a command such as "ps auxf" to find upcp and it's subprocesses and manually kill them via:

Code:
kill -9 PID
Then, try forcing an update of cPanel again after the processes have terminated.

Thank you.

@cPanelMichael , I have run the following command and found these lines.

Code:
# ps aux | grep upcp

Is the second column (after 'root' text) PID?
Now which PID I have to kill?

Thank you

You can kill all of those processes, except for the "grep upcp" process because that's simply the command you are using to search the active processes.

Thank you.

@cPanelMichael , I killed all of these process. After that I run the "Upgrade to Latest Version" from WHM web control panel again. But the problem is same, it hang-up after 2%. What can I do now?

Here are the logs of process ("Upgrade to Latest Version") that hang-up after 2%:

Note that, on the above log, there is a line "Need to upgrade to the LTS version before switching to another major version". Is this the problem? If yes, what is it and how to update it?

Thanks

That's not an issue, it's just a notification that it's changing build tiers before proceeding. Could you open a support ticket using the link in my signature so we can take a closer look? You can post the ticket number here so we can update this thread with the outcome.

Thank you.

To update, the issue occurred due to a corrupted RPM database. cPanel updates now complete well after repairing the RPM database:

Code:
mkdir /root/old_rpm_dbs/
mv /var/lib/rpm/__db* /root/old_rpm_dbs/
rpm --rebuilddb
Thank you.
