Hello,

The message is by-design. Here's a quote from another thread that explains how it works:

When a new version (e.g. 62) is first introduced to the RELEASE and STABLE tiers we stagger the updates over several days. The staggering allows technical support teams at hosting providers around the world the opportunity to absorb surges in support requests which sometimes accompanies new software versions (even if there are no significant bugs we have observed that new versions cause people to open support requests).
Thank you.

I felt strange of that well. At yesterday I could use SSH /scripts/upcp –force and upgraded to v72.0.5 and no known issue. Probably odd more.
Strange about how I upgraded without force option?
The upgrade notification on my server appeared before two days only of scheduled, appeared in Jun 24, 2018 and was scheduled to distribute upgrades in Jun 26, 2018. Of course this is not the reason but only to clarify more.
Anyway it's good that the upgrade done.

Hello @Samet Chan,

cPanel updates are only deferred when executed as part of the nightly upcp cron job. The functionality that defers the update is not engaged when manually executing "/scripts/upcp" via the command line.

Thank you.
