Upgrading to Virtualmin Pro …

Failed to upgrade to Virtualmin Pro : No packages to install found!

I assume this has something to do with Ubuntu 22.04 only being supported by the beta installer, but setup the solution, moved all my sites to it, liked it… so I paid for it, and just trying to get those shiny new features.

Please let me know what I need to do to correct this!

I’d definitely recommend sending a “private message” to @staff as it could be a bug, and/or because you are trying to upgrade to a paid service, it will be a priority matter.

This is a known issue which will be fixed in upcoming Virtualmin 7.2 release. Sorry about now.

The easiest and cleanest way to fix it for now is to grab Virtualmin 7 pre-release install script and use it to setup repos and exit, i.e.:

wget -O virtualmin-install-pre-release.sh https://raw.githubusercontent.com/virtualmin/virtualmin-install/d7fcb4ea35b5545417a38b7af4c4d97dbe45d591/virtualmin-install.sh
sh virtualmin-install-pre-release.sh --setup

… and then run apt-get upgrade to upgrade to VIrtualmin Pro.

Sorry for the late reply, just circled back to this.

This worked as intended! thank you so much for the quick response.
