Then its Easy, Ask your Hosting provider to make a Backup of VPS and then try upgrading. If the VPS breaks, You can restore it
I dont have a clue about the hosting provider, I inherit this server, I am now trying to put it on the right track.. I just want to have it in the right way.. Could you help me with that?

We don't recommend upgrading servers in place from CentOS 6 to 7 using those details as a large majority of them do fail. The only recommendation we have for this work is to migrate to a different machine where CentOS 7 was installed originally.

It's possible the issue could be resolved on the current system, but version 86 is no longer supported, and is 4 versions behind the latest stable release

I can but I thnk according to cPanel Forums terms, I am not allowed to share any of my Contact or Personal Details. You can Try cPanel Support Access. But still, If you need help with direct server, [email protected]

Was that when trying to access WHM? If so, do you see any additional details in the /usr/local/cpanel/logs/error_log file?
It just happens, I tried to reload WebMail and failed, reload cPanel and failed, WHM and failed. Thats how I know it goes down.. And that error msg appears.. I could enter with nano to that log if you want..
