Ubuntu 16.04.1 stuck on Virtualmin 5.06

Sorry if this is a duplicate posting.

In Dec 2016 deployed LightSail Ubuntu 16.04.1 instance using virtualmin install.sh version 1.1.5

Welcome to the Virtualmin GPL installer, version 1.1.5


The installation is quite stable and functional when run on a freshly
installed supported Operating System.

As of today virtualmin/webmin packages not updated.
Other installed packages are updated.

Operating system Ubuntu Linux 16.04.1 Webmin version 1.831 Usermin version 1.690 Virtualmin version 5.06 Theme version Authentic Theme 18.49-9 Time on system Tuesday, September 19, 2017 10:44 PM

sources.list apparently missing needed repos

grep virtual /etc/apt/sources.list root:/etc/apt#

What is safest way to upgrade to current webmin/virtualmin ?

Add the repos back, and don’t remove them again. :wink:

I think it’d look like this:

deb http://software.virtualmin.com/gpl/ubuntu/ virtualmin-xenial main deb http://software.virtualmin.com/gpl/ubuntu/ virtualmin-universal main

If you think AWS is replacing your sources.list, you could add it as a separate file in sources.list.d (we should probably do it that way anyway…we just have to fix it in a lot of places).


I usually work with CentOS.

Pasted the missing repos into sources.list.d file.
Update successful.

Something must have happened during original Dec 2016 install :<
