    Hello -

    Recently I've been getting this error in the output of the upcp script. I'm running on a Virtuozzo VPS, so that may be the problem right there. Just thought I'd post here to see if anyone has any suggestions as to how to fix this. I'll copy what seems to be the "interesting" parts below. These programs try to install every night, but always seem to fail.

    Any help is appreciated!

    Update /scripts

    By the looks its trying to install a new kernel, when i do upcp it says "Skipping Package Kernel" so, do /scripts/updatescripts or something similar to that, im not really sure at the moment.


    Regards,

    Thanks for the reply. It does seem to be kernel related... However, on this Virtuozzo VPS host kernels are custom & are pushed by the Virtuozzo system. I'm assuming I can safely ignore these then?

    BTW - what does the updatescripts script do?

    Try running
    /scripts/updatenow
    before running the cpanel update.

    It makes sure the various scripts called by the upcp script are up to date.

    Still got the same result from upcp. Thanks for the idea though.

    I believe our provider will be rolling out new kernels soon, so maybe this will fix it. If anyone else has a suggestion, let me know.

    Thanks!
