When I do a /scripts/upcp, the first thing that comes out is:

[email protected] [/usr/bin]# /scripts/upcp
Unable to locate working expect! Please check your installation.


Should I be concerned?

WHM 10.3.1 cPanel 10.4.0-E99
CentOS 4.1 i686 - WHM X v3.1.0

Does sound odd to me, perhaps make sure you have been compromised, unless this is just an edge bug.

What does the following command report?

rpm -qa expect

and also:

rpm -Vv expect

Go on, have a guess
It's a scripting language and application that allows a third-party to run an interactive script. I'd suggest that you run:

yum install expect
