Unable to install updates from the UI (but can via SSH)

  • Hi folks, I've been searching around but cannot find a definitive solution for this that works on my NAS.


    I upgraded to OMV 6 and ever since then, the updates UI refuses to check for or install updates. The error I get is:

    "500 - Internal Server Error: The package database is held by another process. Please try again later."


    This seems to only be an issue within the OMV UI itself because when I drop into an SSH session and instead run "sudo apt update" and "sudo apt upgrade," updates install just fine.


    Is there some file that needs to be cleared? I tried rebooting and that didn't do anything. Same for omv-firstaid.
