Hello

I am using kernel-3.10.0-1160.2.2.el7, I applied the free patch for this kernel a few days ago but now the following error appears when cron runs for 4 hours.

The `free` type patch is not found for your kernel. Please select existing patch type

***

The same error appears when I update manually.

[[email protected] kcare]# kcarectl --set-patch-type free --update
'free' patch type is unavailable for your kernel

***

When I check sysctl, I see that patch is active.

[[email protected] kcare]# sysctl -n fs.enforce_symlinksifowner
1
[[email protected] kcare]# sysctl -n fs.symlinkown_gid
99

Hello Micheal,
Thank you for reaching out! We are really sorry about your experience. This is a single time issue, due to changes in our deployment process. Free, extra, and EDF patches for the latest centos 7 update is available now in the test feed.
To manually apply them run: kcarectl --update --test
and will be available in the main feed on Monday.
Thank you.

Hi,

I am having the same issue, under the latest cpanel, 90.0.17 and latest centos 7 kernel.

I get alert email with:
Subject: Cron <[email protected]> /usr/bin/kcarectl -q --auto-update
Body: The `free` type patch is not found for your kernel. Please select existing patch type

In this cpanel forum post, https://forums.cpanel.net/threads/kcarectl-error.681885/#post-2802541, I was directed to this post so I run "kcarectl --update --test" twice:
1st:
"
Patch level 5 applied. Effective kernel version
Kernel is safe
"

2nd:
"
Updates already downloaded
No updates are needed for this kernel
Kernel is safe
"

Then run
sysctl -n fs.enforce_symlinksifowner
sysctl -n fs.symlinkown_gid

The first resulted in 1 and the 2nd with 99 but still the initial error is keep arriving by as an alert email.

What can I do?
