4.10 gpl to 4.11 pro

My site just updated itself from 4.10 gpl to 4.11 pro

It says there was a package update to webmin, so I ran it, now it says I have pro ? Help...

Howdy -- hmm, that's unusual! I wasn't able to reproduce the problem you're seeing when updating an Ubuntu system.

Where do you see it mentioning it's the "Pro" version?

Also, what output do you receive when running this command:

cat /etc/virtualmin-license

I may have accidentally run my GPL package copying script in the wrong directory. Looking into it.

Yep. Apologies for the inconvience.

It's fixed in the repo now, though we'll need to convince apt/dpkg to install the new GPL version over the incorrect Pro version (the Pro version will complain about license problems, so you will want to switch back).

Eric, is there a way to force apt-get to install a particular version of a package from the repos? I dunno how the version comparison works, but if the universal repo served out the Pro version over the GPL in this instance, I guess it somehow compares as newer than the GPL version (this seems weird as GPL version has "gpl" in the version section, which seems like it ought to compare as newer).
