Hi,

I get alert email with:
Subject: Cron <[email protected]> /usr/bin/kcarectl -q --auto-update
Body: The `free` type patch is not found for your kernel. Please select existing patch type

I use the latest cpanel, 90.0.17 and latest centos 7 kernel.

What can I do to solve this?

It's a recent bug..they fixed it once but looks like it came back...what does your cron entry says? (etc/cron.d/kcare-cron)

OK, I run "kcarectl --update --test" twice:
1st:
"
Patch level 5 applied. Effective kernel version
Kernel is safe
"

2nd:
"
Updates already downloaded
No updates are needed for this kernel
Kernel is safe
"

If the issue will return - I will post about it here.

If all is OK - I will simply keep quiet and you can assume the issue is fixed by this move.

Thank you guys!

The funny thing, btw, is that I do not use cloudlinux, so I it is not clear how this component is active for my cpanel.

Kernelcare is developed by a cloudlinux. You don't need to use cloudlinux to use kernelcare.

You can run the commands below to see if the patch is active. If it returns 1 and 99, the patch is active.

Code:
sysctl -n fs.enforce_symlinksifowner
sysctl -n fs.symlinkown_gid

Here for the same reason except mine is
Code:
The `extra` type patch is not found for your kernel. Please select existing patch type
I assume because I pay the $3 monthly my patch is different. From the link above at cloudlinux it looks like this should be fixed on Monday.

Thanks, but I will avoid bothering you guys and girls and I will wait for the great Monday...
Do I need to manually run any command on Monday to get this fix?
