Hello,

What is the output of the following command:

grep -Rs virtualmin.com /etc

Here is output:

/etc/webmin/virtual-server/latest-scripts/whmcs.pl:	   'url' => "http://scripts.virtualmin.com/whmcs_v${shortver}.zip" } );
Binary file /etc/apt/trusted.gpg~ matches

Update repo file /etc/apt/sources.list.d/virtualmin.list manually and set its content to:

deb https://software.virtualmin.com/vm/6/gpl/apt virtualmin-xenial main
deb https://software.virtualmin.com/vm/6/gpl/apt virtualmin-universal main

Almost there. Changed repo:

# cat virtualmin.list
deb http://software.virtualmin.com/vm/6/gpl/apt/ virtualmin-xenial main
deb http://software.virtualmin.com/vm/6/gpl/apt/ virtualmin-universal main

Now receive the following:

Try downloading latest development version of the virtualmin-install.sh script and run it with -s param, to setup (re-setup) repos and exit:

wget https://raw.githubusercontent.com/virtualmin/virtualmin-install/master/virtualmin-install.sh
sh virtualmin-install.sh -s

Did the trick:

# cat virtualmin.list

FYI: Ubuntu 16.04 was end of life April of last year. You seriously need to upgrade to at least 18.04 LTS.
