Starting on October 19, 2021, we will enable single-sign-on for our Plesk Support Center to provide a seamless login/account experience. This implies that you’ll be able to use a single account across any of our web-facing properties.
To be prepared for this change and to avoid the need to register during your next ticket submission after the change, we encourage you to create an account here before October 19 using the same email address as your current Zendesk login (support account). It’s essential that you use the same email address on our support center to ensure that your tickets stay attached to the same account. You will continue to use ZenDesk authentication until we switch over to single-sign-on on October 19th.

Does Plesk install updates for system packages automatically?

    Article lacks info of the update itself:

    To install system package updates please use the apt-get utility. Run the command below to start the update of system packages:

    # apt-get update && apt-get upgrade

    After the installation is completed, please reboot the server via the following command at a suitable time:

    # reboot

    In addition, you can also try using KernelCare extension to be sure that a server's kernel is up-to-date. The extension allows installing kernel updates on the fly without rebooting the server.

    It is safe to update Plesk server's system packages using an operating system package manager and moreover, we recommend to keep the system up-to-date and update system packages from official repositories in case such updates are available. It allows keeping your Plesk server secured. Please refer to the following article for details: Is it safe to update Plesk server's system packages using an operating system package manager?

    Articles in our KB (including this one) refer to Plesk functionality, whereas updating system packages is a system administrative task that should be performed independently. As for the kernel updates, there is also a link in the article explaining the process and suggesting KernelCare as an automatic alternative.

    @Leonid Gukhman,

    True, however it's extremly important to point out this fact, that the article recommended actions do NOT fully cover full server update, and what are the additional stesp required to achieve such full server update. Clients do NOT care what portion of the server update is taken care on Plesk, but that they get a fully updated server.
