    I've seen many pages on the web about this.
    I'm runnign cpanel on centos 7
    they removed the /dev/root from ver. 6 already,
    Yet I keep getting mails from cpanel -
    repquota: Cannot stat() mounted device /dev/root: No such file or directory

    How can I fix that ?

    Hello :)

    Could you provide some more details about your server environment? EX:

    Code:
    uname -r
    Also, are you using a provider such as Linode or OVH?

    Thank you.

    check if you got a sybolic link and that it is correct your /etc/fstab should be correct
    ln -s /dev/yourrootdevice /dev/root


    as Michael said if you using some of OVH & linode images you may need to add
    KERNEL=="yourrootdevice", SUBSYSTEM=="block", SYMLINK+="root"

    to /etc/udev/rules.d/99-root-link.rules so the symbolic link survives a reboot
