  • Plesk for Linux/Unix


Plesk has been updated to latest micro-update but still reports available updates.


The problem might be caused by non-default path to directory of root user.

While Parallels Installer (/usr/local/psa/admin/sbin/autoinstaller) looks for file microupdates.xml in root's home directory, Plesk's weekly self-update task always looks for /root/.autoinstaller/microupdates.xml, which is missing if root home directory is not in /root


The problem will be fixed in future updates to Parallels Plesk.


Create symbolic link in /root pointing to new location of directory .autoinstaller:

# ln -s /home/root/.autoinstaller /root/.autoinstaller
