yum nginx update failed
« on: November 18, 2021, 12:23:45 PM »
CWPpro version: 0.9.8.1101

YUM is not able to update this package: nginx.x86_64    1:1.20.2-1.el7.ngx

the automatic updater just shows failed and cleared but it never works.

Any ideas how i get this to work or how i can see what exactly is the problem?

In the logs i haven't found any yum or update log.

thanks

i tried to update it in the terminal and it was a bit more user friendly what's going on:

It is in german but it tells me unpacking was the problem

The problem probably you have two repositories for nginx binaries (possibly CentOS and nginx repositories).

I had the exact same problem, and was needed to remove and downgrade the nginx version to a working version:
Code: [Select]
# yum remove nginx
# yum install nginx-1.20.1-1.el7.ngx
May be needed remove other nginx packages too.

A *serious* problem:
Be careful and make sure you have the configuration file backed up ('/etc/nginx/nginx.conf'), because it will erase that file.
You will need to restore this file from backup, to keep the new downgraded binary nginx working.
