Webmin update still fails!

Hey Guys!

I still can't update Webmin, the signing seems to work now but update still fails.

CentOS 5.9 and Virtualmin Pro

I have run "yum clean all" but I still get this message:

Now updating webmin ..

Is your system perhaps configured to use (or behind) as web proxy that is caching the old file?

As a quick work-around, you could always run :

cd /tmp
wget http://prdownloads.sourceforge.net/webadmin/webmin-1.630-1.noarch.rpm
rpm -U webmin-1.630-1.noarch.rpm

Joe actually fixed this issue after I brought it to his attention. Was a combination of signing issue, and repo not being correctly rebuilt as I recall. Run.

yum clean all
yum update

Let us know if you are still having problems.


Hi guys!

Jamie, No, not using proxy.

Peter, I have run "yum clean all" but the result is the same, I did it once more a few minutes ago - then clicked the update button from Virtualmin, and the result is the same ... install failed!

Then I decided to try it from the command line with PuTTY, and by manually run "yum update" the webmin update works.

Why didn't the update work from Virtualmin?

Thanks guys!
