    My WHM security advisor is, as of last week, reporting in a grey notification bar at the top of the list of checks:

    "The system cannot update the kernel: Cannot update this system’s kernel."

    There are currently zero outstanding updates reported by "yum check-update".

    I do not wish to have the system perform kernel updates automatically (I prefer to do them manually on a cloned server as a test first, then roll them out on my production server).

    Is this grey notification simply letting me know automatic kernel upgrades are disabled, or do I have a problem?

    TY!

    Hello,

    The alert you see can appear if your system runs within a VPS environment, such as QEMU/KVM or Virtuozzo, as options that affect the operating system may be unavailable on such environments.

    Thank you.

    I've been getting the same error emails too (and I'm on a VPS). Can I safely ignore this or do I need to contact my VPS provider to get them to update it on their end?

    Thanks!

    Hello @menathor,

    The original post on this thread was related to that message in "WHM >> Security Advisor". Can you confirm what the subject and body of the email message you are receiving contains?

    Thank you.
