Virtualmin compatibility with Ubuntu 14.04

Operating system: Ubuntu
OS version: 14.04 LTS

Yes I know this is EOL, it will be updated or migrated by the end of the year. Big project.

It is currently running Webmin 1.96 and Virtualmin 6.03. I am wondering what the latest Virtualmin is that will run on it.

I have virtualmin-trusty on the apt sources list, and (no surprise) there’s nothing available to update. Same is true for virtualmin-universal.

Am I out of luck?

Hi,

It should work. You can always install/upgrade .deb package manually from Webmin.com site.

Thanks! Will try it during my next server maintenance time.

The trusty repo never had Webmin packages.

You should be looking in the universal repo, which works for any deb-based system, including EOL version. (But, still, don’t run EOL distros.)

No. That’s not correct. virtualmin-universal has the latest versions of Webmin and Virtualmin.

What I mean by this is that when I have virtualmin-universal in my sources list, Webmin doesn’t prompt me for an update. Should it, even with Ubuntu 14.04? If so, why doesn’t it do that? Would it make a difference how it was originally installed?

Yes. There are probably errors. Do an apt-get update and see what they are.

Yes indeed. I am using the GPL version BTW. Pasting in the output:

Any update on this? Do I need to install a public key on my server?
