Reading package lists... W: GPG error: http://dl.google.com/linux/mod-pagespeed/deb stable Release: The following signatures couldn't be verified because the public key is not available: NO_PUBKEY 1234567890ABCDEF E: The repository 'http://dl.google.com/linux/mod-pagespeed/deb stable Release' is not signed.
If you are using the ISPmanager 6 license and the control panel is blocked, you can update ISPmanager via the console. To do this:
Every version has a separate repository which name matches the version name. Also, there are beta5 and stable5 repositories with all the versions of a software product. The repository defines a version the control panel can be updated to. "stable5" includes the stable and time-proved version of a software product. "beta5" includes the version that is still being tested. You can select a repository during the installation process.
Switch from "stable5" to "beta5":
echo 'beta' > /usr/local/mgr5/etc/repo.version /usr/local/mgr5/sbin/licctl fetch ispmgr
More information on how to change the repository from "beta5" to "stable5" please refer to the article Change the repository from beta to stable.
