Upgrade webmin and virtualmin by APT

My system:
Ubuntu Linux 12.04.1
Apache version 2.2.22
MySQL version 5.5.46

I added webmin repository as explained on http://www.webmin.com/deb.html
I’m trying to upgrade webmin and virtualmin by APT by it can’t find latest versions.

I’m stuck on:
Webmin 1.780
Virtualmin 4.13

What I have to do to get Virtualmin 5 without loosing configurations? Installing manually with .deb?


I found this:
can I use it to manually upgrade webmin and virtualmin?


Hmm, how did you perform your initial Virtualmin installation?

And what does your current /etc/apt/sources.list file look like?


You would need to change your /etc/apt/sources.list to point to software.virtualmin.com. If you have Virtualmin Professional, you’ll need to use your serial number and license key (which can be found in virtualmin-license) to authenticate to the Pro repos.

Like this:


There is also a binary repo that is specific to your distro and version, but, if you aren’t already setup to use those binaries (I think procmail-wrapper is the only binary that is installed on Ubuntu), you won’t need them now. The universal repo contains all of the Virtualmin, Webmin, and Usermin packages you need.

Once the repos are setup, you can upgrade using the normal process. 4.13 is recent enough to where there won’t be any major changes, so it should go quite smoothly.

Ok after some test I used this:

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

all upgraded successfully!
…and now Authentic theme works (see here: https://www.virtualmin.com/node/39286#comment-749958)
