    Hi there,

    I've seen other discussions regarding this issue, but from what I've seen, it was supposed to have been fixed in cPanel 68. I'm still receiving the 'You must reboot the server to apply software updates' message.

    Here is some output that has been requested on other discussions:

    Code:
    # cat /usr/local/cpanel/version
    11.70.0.39
    
    # whmapi1 system_needs_reboot
    
    ---

        updates:
          dbus: 1:1.10.24-7.el7
          glibc: 2.17-222.el7
          linux-firmware: 20180220-62.git6d51311.el7
          openssl-libs: 1:1.0.2k-12.el7
          systemd: 1:219-53.el7.cloudlinux
      needs_reboot: 1
    metadata:
      command: system_needs_reboot

      version: 1
    
     Cpanel::Kernel::Status::kernel_status(); print Dumper \$kernel;':Kernel::Status; use Data::Dumper; my $kernel =
    $VAR1 = \{
                'unpatched_version' => '3.10.0-714.10.2.lve1.4.63.el7.x86_64',
                'running_version' => '3.10.0-714.10.2.lve1.5.17.el7',
                'has_kernelcare' => 1,
                'running_latest' => '',
                'reboot_required' => 1,
                'boot_version' => '3.10.0-714.10.2.lve1.4.74.el7.x86_64'
              };
    Kernelcare is running and ensuring the the running/patched kernel version is the latest. Why am I being prompted to reboot to apply software updates?

    Thanks!

    Hello @akust0m,

    It looks like the reboot message is accurate based on the information you provided. It shows that packages were updated on your system through YUM and a reboot (or restart of those services) is required. You can read more about this topic at:

    How often should you do Graceful Server Reboot?

    Thank you.

    Ahhh!! I thought it was related to the kernel. In this case, it makes sense then :)
