[Solved] How to fix Git failure error while updating cPanel?

Git failure error

Yeah, by default, all cPanel server has a cron to update cPanel daily. You can setup this by editing the configuration file “/etc/cpupdate.conf.”

This can also configure from the WHM panel as root.

Go to WHM >> Home >> Server Configuration >> Update Preferences.

Here I am going to explain a fix for Git failure while updating cPanel.

You have to update that package manually and then run the cPanel update script.

Error details

You could try using --skip-broken to work around the problem
You could try running: rpm -Va --nofiles --nodigest

-- error(29875) --
yum exited 256
-- /error(29875) --

System update process has finished.

This is because of cPanel configures yum to exclude perl updates to protect it’s own packages. We can fix it by running yum manually.


You can update the Git package and its dependencies using Yum command through shell. The command to run is pasted below:

yum install git --disableexcludes=main --skip-broken

Then run upcp manually.



/scripts/upcp --force

That’s it, dude!!
