Webmin not updating - killed

My VPS container doesn't like to update webin. Tried from webmin, and tried Putty too (right after reboot).

# yum install -y webmin

Is that a memory issue?

If I had to take a guess, I'd guess that you're using OpenVZ, and that you probably don't have high enough resources allocated -- and the Webmin update is pushing you up against them, which causes OpenVZ to kill the process.

You can verify that by looking in /proc/user_beancounters, and looking in the "failcnt" field. If any of those are non-zero, you're receiving hard failures. If you receive hard failures for memory related limits, that suggests processes are being killed off.

If that's the case, you could try to free up some RAM, or you could obtain more resources from your provider.
