Why XEN is offered in Updates

Hello Everyone,

I am trying to figure out why you are forcing XEN updates on my server when I don’t use Xen. I use KVM, So everytime I go to updates I see 3 Xen packages. Yes I know I can uncheck them but it’s very annoying if I am using KVM it shouldn’t even present XEN.

Just my two cents,


Virtualmin isn’t forcing anything :slight_smile:

The only updates it shows you in the GUI are updates that show up when running a “yum update” or “apt-get upgrade”.

If it’s proposing updates to Xen, that just means you have Xen packages installed, and updates to those packages were found.

You can have the packages for Xen installed without actually using it.
