    I have somehow ended up with redhat versions of most (if not all) Plesk components on my server. The problem is that it's a Centos server.

    Either the hosting company installed the redhat version of Plesk by accident, or my sys admins have somehow installed redhat plesk updates.

    Now plesk autoupdate fails with errors like -

    Check package set before installation
    Package psa-migration-manager-8.3.0-cos4.build83071224.15.i586 is within installation list but newer package psa-migration-manager-8.3.0-rhel4.build83071224.15.i586 is already installed in system.
    ERROR: You have a newer version of the psa-migration-manager package installed on your system. The installation will not continue.

    Does anyone know how I can get it back to the Centos version of Plesk (8.3) without having to migrate to a whole new server?

    I would be most grateful for any help on this one...

    Ive done that too (back before there was a centos version), I fixed it by using yum to update to handle the updates. Eventually the system will fix itself.

    Thanks for the quick reply!

    I was hoping someone would say that! Hopefully when there is a newer Centos build for plesk (with a newer build date/number than the currently installed Redhat version) it will simply update to the new Centos build.

    HOWEVER...

    I've just noticed 3 other error messages in the file at /tmp/autoinstaller3.log (from when I used the 'Plesk Updater' option in Plesk today -
    1) 'Warning: unresolved requires'... (this error is repeated several times)
    2) 'Warning: packages conflict by files detected'...'with different md5 sum' (this error is repeated for basically all plesk components)
    3) Dependency problems - 'Unresolved dependency' and 'dependency problem is found' (both near the end of the log file, shown below).

    Are these messages also going to dissapear when there is a newer Centos build for each Plesk component, or do I need to do something manually to fix these errors before it will update from the redhat builds to the Centos builds?

    Here is some of the autoinstaller3.log file with those 2 errors. Let me know if you want the whole file -

    Nope, just dont use the updater (its going to keep making the problem worse). Eventually you'll just upgrade around it, and it will go away.

    Hi Atomic.

    Thanks for your replies.

    I've never used yum before, but today I've tried upgrading a few psa components. I updated psa-watchdog without any problems.

    However when I try to update the others it's giving 'Missing Dependency' errors.

    I'm really not keen to muck around with it myself further as this server is hosting hundreds of web sites, and I can't afford to crash Plesk.

    You seem to be the most knowledgable person I've discussed these issues with. Are you available to take a quick look at my server in the next few days? I tried to get you via chat but you're offline. I'm on msn at XXXXXX or you can sms me at +61 XXXXXX and I"ll come online straight away.

    I really want to get this sorted out.
