Notification: Available updates - SECURITY ISSUE
« on: November 05, 2020, 07:48:19 PM »
This notification is in bottom right corner when logged in to the cwp. It says: "CWP found 19 available yum/rpm updates for your server, click here to check it."
But there are no any updates available. Clicking "update all" button gives:
Code: [Select]
Last metadata expiration check: 0:02:10 ago on Thu Nov  5 20:41:53 2020.
Dependencies resolved.
Nothing to do.
Complete!

But in the yum manager there is a list:
Code: [Select]
List of available packages for update
Package Name Version Repository Action
do-agent.x86_64 1.1.3-1 digitalocean-agent Update
do-agent.x86_64 2.0.0-1 digitalocean-agent Update
do-agent.x86_64 2.0.1-1 digitalocean-agent Update
do-agent.x86_64 2.0.2-1 digitalocean-agent Update
do-agent.x86_64 2.1.3-1 digitalocean-agent Update
do-agent.x86_64 2.2.0-1 digitalocean-agent Update
do-agent.x86_64 2.2.1-1 digitalocean-agent Update
do-agent.x86_64 2.2.3-1 digitalocean-agent Update
do-agent.x86_64 2.2.4-1 digitalocean-agent Update
Clicking update or update all at the bottom, does not do anything.
How to resolve this?
Thank you

Ask DO, seeing as you decided to build your server from their template and not a clean, minimal ISO.
In any case, it should be obvious how to resolve, if you were a sysadmin.

Well, I'm new at this and trying to learn how to manage server.
So can you please explain how to resolve this as it is not obvious to me.
Thank you.

Also, popup says that there are 19 updates, it always shows 19, but there are clearly fever on the list.

Terminal
Code: [Select]
yum -y updateThen take a long large search on how to manage a linux server.  ::)
Then build your server from a minimal ISO, as stated in the CWP installation instructions and the digitalocean-agent won't be installed automatically.
Alternatively, remove the agent and be prepared for other queries from yourself, when other stuff doesn't work.
[Perhaps have your employer subsidise a week long course, to get you started.]

I posted this here because standard update methods, including yum -y update, didnt resolve the issue. I think this is a cwp bug since all update methods says that there are no available updates, therefore I asked for someone with better knowledge and experience how to tackle this issue from cwp perspective since cwp reports 19 available updates.
Does anyone knows how to fix this?
