Switch to "new Webmin-Repository URL" doesn't work

OS type and version REQUIRED
Webmin version REQUIRED
Virtualmin version REQUIRED
Related packages SUGGESTED

Today I’ve found a notice for a required upgrade of the Repository-URL:

If I click on this button, the page reload and I see a spinning loading-indicator in the upper right corner of the message.
But if it disappear and after reloading the page, the message still appear.

Any Idea how to check and fix this issue?

I am having this problem too.

|OS type and version|Ubuntu Linux 20.04.6|
|Webmin version|2.100|
|Virtualmin version|7.7|
|Related packages|SUGGESTED|

I wonder if there is a way to set this new URL manually to fix this.

Yeah, it can be easily fixed. Although, at first can you see which APT config repo files have webmin.com set, e.g.:

grep -Rsi webmin.com /etc/apt

Also, show the content for the files that contain webmin.com strings.

# grep -Rsi webmin.com /etc/apt

/etc/apt/sources.list:deb [trusted=yes] http://download.webmin.com/download/repository sarge contrib
/etc/apt/sources.list:# deb-src https://download.webmin.com/download/repository sarge contrib
Binary file /etc/apt/trusted.gpg~ matches
Binary file /etc/apt/trusted.gpg matches

You want the entire content for /etc/apt/sources.list? Or what other file?

I’d suggest to just remove all lines that contain webmin.com in /etc/apt/sources.list, as you should only use Virtualmin repos.

If you wanted to have Webmin repos as well, you could use Webmin setup-repos.sh script to setup repos in the right way.

We will also change Webmin fix_repo.cgi script to handle all various formats.

Thanks for the heads up!

Ok, so only to conclude:

  1. we should remove (or comment) all lines in source.list which contain webmin.com
  2. then we should run /usr/share/webmin/setup-repos.sh

I wonder If I only have virtualmin repositories, will webmin upgraded too, or do I need to also have webmin-repositories activated via setup-repos.sh ?

What exactly would this “webmin-repos” are needed for?

Yep, stick with virtualmin repos if you installed using the virtualmin script, that my understanding and I don’t have any webmin repos as it will conflict with virtualmins repos.
