As suggested previously, I set the updates to Never for cPanel/WHM, Package and Security Updates. But this did not stop the daily upcp runs. I receive an upcp run email everyday.

No third party software except ConfigServer Firewall, mail manage and mail queues. I cannot find what is causing updates to run. Can anyone offer a suggestion as to how can I stop upcp running when it is disabled or what might be causing updates to run despite being disabled?

Can someone please test and confirm or otherwise if upcp continues to run when updates are set to manual or never? Symptoms were there with RELEASE and CURRENT. I updated to EDGE to see if this would resolve it.

Thanks

cPanel 11.24.7-E35196 - WHM 11.24.4 - X 3.9

Its simple:

# crontab -e

then comment out the line which runs /scripts/upcp

remember that if you manually run upcp, it will RE-ENABLE the line above, so you'll need to comment it out again.

have phun :)
