    I am attempting to upgrade from to however I get the following error.

    cPanel & WHM cannot update due to insufficient disk space. The system detected 568.71 MB free, but requires at least 1 GB free at '/usr/local/cpanel' in order to successfully update.

    I have gone into Update Preferences and set the staging area to the /home2 partition which has over 300G available but it still fails due to insufficient disk space.

    I checked and the staging directory is created on the partition. I am scratching my head why?

    Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on
    /dev/vdb1 378G 5.2G 373G 2% /home2

    Any clues why this could be happening?

    Best regards,

    Hi Eric,

    Could you open a support ticket using the link in my signature so we can take a closer look? You can post the ticket number here and we will update this thread with the outcome.

    Thank you.
