    I can't do an EasyApache install currently without it saying I need to run a cPanel update first. However all my servers have been saying the following for more than 30 minutes...

    Checking again....
    Fetching http://httpupdate.cpanel.net/cpanelsync/RELEASE/Cpanel/.cpanelsync.lock (0).......connecting to 94.75.231.77...@94.75.231.77......connected......receiving...100%......Done
    The update server is currently updating its files.
    It may take up to 30 minutes before access can be obtained.
    Waiting 240 seconds for access to the update server......

    Are you having a problem with your update servers?

    Try this:

    1. Open "/root/.HttpRequest/httpupdate.cpanel.net"
    2. Remove "94.75.231.77"
    3. Save the file and re-run "/scripts/upcp"

    It worked for me! :)

    I have newly installed cPanel on another of my servers tonight, and dispite the supposed fix in post 6, it is currently still going after 40 mins on an 8gb system, W/8 core CPU

    EDIT: Still going after an hour!

    cPanel?

    I'm surprised cPanel haven't yet responded to this post.

    Try this:

    "mv /root/.HttpRequest/httpupdate.cpanel.net /root/.HttpRequest/httpupdate.cpanel.net.old"

    Then re-run /scripts/upcp and see what happens.

    1) Which tier and architecture are you trying to update to?
    ie EDGE, EDGE-x86_64, RELEASE, RELEASE-FREEBSD, RELEASE-FREEBSD-amd64, RELEASE-x86_64 etc

    2) Which update server is it trying to pull the update from?


    Thanks

    Sometimes it takes just a bit longer when the update is very large. The average time is about 10 minutes for minor updates.
