    During latest update I have received error:
    There is no /etc/localtime file in system

    I have checked out this file and found than this is broken symlink pointing to non-existent file

    But there is NO timezone with name "UTS". The right name is "UTC"!

    I have fixed symlink, but I was wondering what happened.

    I have remembered that a day before update I have changed a server time zone through the Plesk Panel (Server Management -> Tools & Setting -> General Settings -> System Time). I checked this page again and found than in listbox with timezones the "UTC" zone named incorrectly as "UTS"!

    I have choosed this line and save changes - and (bingo!) the panel have created new WRONG symlink to /usr/share/zoneinfo/UTS !

    It seems to be an error in Plesk Panel timezone management, which should be fixed asap.

    Thanks for you attention.

    Looks like it is caused by unsuccessful upgrade. Try to fix it with

    rm -f /etc/localtime
    ln -s /usr/share/zoneinfo/GMT /etc/localtime

    and then run bootstrapper repair.
