    After all I have to say I've tried everything I found on the internet to fix that problem.

    The first issue is that after a night autoupgrade cpanel starts to send me emails about "tailwatchd failed":

    tailwatchd failed @ Tue Jan 15 03:35:01 2013. A restart was attempted automagically.

    After that I tried to force upgrade (several times), to reload services (tailwatchd, chkservd, exim, ...)

    chkservd has failed, please contact the sysadmin (result was "tailwatchd is not running").​

    Logs show me:

    /usr/local/cpanel/libexec/tailwatchd --status hangs.

    If I try to restart cpanel and happened the same. I tried too deleting rpm databases cache to force the system to download again index packages.

    /usr/local/cpanel/bin/checkperlmodules --full

    Tested 161, 161 ok, 0 failed.
    Using fast module check.....checked 5 modules in 0 second(s)

    Cpanel::TaskQueue: [INSTALLED=1] [VERSION=0.307]


    Source: fastest CPAN mirror ... MD5 is up to date. (2.03)

    The second issue is that, if a try to update cpanel it hangs too on the step: "Install Postgres by running /usr/local/cpanel/scripts/installpostgres"

    I can't reboot the server.

    Is there any solution? I must fix it.


    PD: I suggest autoupdate should appears like a selected option at first loggin to root user, but giving the chance to disable it.
