Multiple Versions of Webmin

Hello, hope someone can help me :slight_smile:

Just tried to upgrade webmin to version 1.590-1 (using the web interface)
but the process hung on “Processing Transaction” and now I have two versions
of webmin installed:

rpm -qa | grep webmin


Is there a way to fix this?

Thanks in advance


What happens if you log in as root over SSH, and run the command:

yum update

With any luck, that’ll complete the upgrade process, which should also remove your old copy.


Hi Eric, thanks for your reply.

No luck this time, just ran the command. Here’s the output:

Loaded plugins: fastestmirror, priorities Loading mirror speeds from cached hostfile * base: * epel: * extras: * updates: Setting up Update Process No Packages marked for Update

Is there a way to uninstall the older version, keeping the latest?



What happens if you run this command:

rpm -e webmin-1.585-1

Hi Eric,

Just issued the command and rpm -qa now reports only the latest version,
while yum update says no packages are marked for update.

Everything seems to be working fine, except the auto-reply feature (see

Thank you!
