cPanel ELevate Fails On Stage Four Not Found Print

  • 0

The cPanel ELevate process has been started, and upon reaching stage four, it fails and displays an error about dnf stating the following:

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/lib64/python3.6/site-packages/libdnf/", line 14, in swig_import_helper
    return importlib.import_module(mname)
  File "/usr/lib64/python3.6/importlib/", line 126, in import_module
    return _bootstrap._gcd_import(name[level:], package, level)
  File "<frozen importlib._bootstrap>", line 994, in _gcd_import

  File "<frozen importlib._bootstrap_external>", line 922, in create_module
  File "<frozen importlib._bootstrap>", line 219, in _call_with_frames_removed
ImportError: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

During handling of the above exception, another exception occurred:

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/bin/dnf", line 57, in <module>

    return _bootstrap._gcd_import(name[level:], package, level)
ModuleNotFoundError: No module named '_error'

The error can be caused when the dnf process inadvertently ends, such as when rebooting your server, which you should never do during the elevation process. You can confirm brotli has not been installed by checking for the missing file:

stat /lib64/
stat: cannot statx '/lib64/': No such file or directory

If this is the case, you can manually install the brotli package by running:

rpm -Uvh --force --nodeps brotli-1.0.6-3.el8.x86_64.rpm

After the package has been installed you can continue the cPanel ELevate process by running:

/scripts/elevate-cpanel --continue
