    Hi,

    Since two days I see the error "Unable to read /etc/cpupdate.conf, permission denied" in my daily upcp-cron notification. It is triggered by different setup scripts like 'FTP Setup Script Version 6.0', 'Exim Setup Script Version 20.0', 'MySQL Setup Script Version 7.0', etc.

    A file /etc/cpupdate.conf does not exist on my system.

    What should I do?

    Regards,
    Erich

    Hi chirpy! I had a similar idea before reading your posting. The old update settings were
    • Manual cPanel/WHM updates (STABLE tree)
    • Automatic cPanel package updates
    • Automatic security package updates
    I switched this to 'Automatic cPanel/WHM updates (RELEASE tree)'. Now the errors are gone.

    Thank you anyway for your advice.

    Erich
