  1. Required yum repositories on service node are not configured.
  2. The issue is caused by the system locale settings (software issue #PPA-2149). When updater gets repositories list, it cannot parse it because of differences in columns name:

Default locale:

# env LANG=C yum -C --disablerepo=repo-id-* repolist
Loaded plugins: product-id, rhncheckplugin, rhnplugin, subscription-manager
repo id                          repo name                         status
rhel-x86_64-server-6             Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server   14233
rhel-x86_64-server-optional-6    RHEL Server Optional              8063
repolist: 22296

Dutch locale:

# yum -C --disablerepo=repo-id-* repolist
Repo-ID                        Repo-Name:                          Status
rhel-x86_64-server-6           Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server     14.233
rhel-x86_64-server-optional-6  RHEL Server Optional                8.063
repolist: 22.296

The columns names are different.


The fix for software issue #PPA-2149 is included in Plesk Automation MU#9.

Instructions on installing PA updates available at How to install PA updates.

To configure YUM repositories:

Determine the version of service node operating system:

    cat /etc/redhat-release

Depending on the operating system resolution is different:

  • CentOS

    Run following commands:

     mkdir unpack
     rm -f index.html
     os_version=` cat /etc/redhat-release | egrep -o "([0-9])" | head -n 1`
     if [ $os_version -eq 6 ]; then packages='Packages'; else packages='CentOS'; fi;
     wget$os_version/$os_version/os/` uname -m`/$packages/
     filename=`grep -Po '(?!>)(centos-release-[0-9]-[0-9].*\.rpm\b)(?!<)' index.html`
     wget$os_version/$os_version/os/` uname -m`/$packages/$filename
     mkdir -p /tmp/unpack/var/lock/rpm/
     rpm -Uvh --root /tmp/unpack/ --nodeps centos-release*rpm
     cd /etc/yum.repos.d/
     mkdir attic
     mv *.repo attic/
     cp /tmp/unpack/etc/yum.repos.d/* .
     rm -fr /tmp/unpack
  • RedHat

    If your service node operating system is RedHat, please refer to article:
