Information only, no action requested.

My CentOS installations (2, GPL) include yum addon to repackage and save prior versions of software being updated.

Received notice there was an update to webmin. Ran update, update appeared to run fine until it got to the repackaging step

Now updating webmin ..

At this point there did not appear to be any more update activity after this point.

After about 30 minutes I logged into server with a different browser, checked for updates, Webmin was at the new update version and all appears to be ok.

This happened on two separate servers.



Yes, this happens sometimes .. the update process can kill the webmin process that is doing the update!

Fortunately it is quite harmless - all you need to do is reload the page.
