Not able to upgrade with the new license


I have purchased the Professional license, but not able to upgrade the existing server with GPL. I am getting the error:

Error: Failed to upgrade to Virtualmin Pro : No Virtualmin GPL repository was found in /etc/yum.repos.d/virtualmin.repo

virtualmin.repo is available in the said location.

Please look into this.


Closed (fixed)


Howdy -- thanks for contacting us!

Below are the contents of virtualmin.repo:

[virtualmin-universal] name=Virtualmin Distribution Neutral Packages baseurl= enabled=1 gpgkey=file:///etc/pki/rpm-gpg/RPM-GPG-KEY-virtualmin-6 gpgcheck=1

Hi Thanks for the reply, however because of the delay I have installed a new pro version of Virtualmin and moved my site from the GPL version to pro version.


Closing this now.

Did that issue initially happen to you when installing GPL version of Virtualmin on clean CentOS 7, with mentioned earlier install script?

No, the GPL version was installed seamlessly. It only happened when I tried using the PRO license from the Virtualmin UI.

Okay, thanks!

I see what the problem was. It will be fixed on the next Virtualmin release.
