'Installation service is not running. Package actions disabled.' error in Gaia Portal - Software Updates - Status and Actions
Symptoms
  • 'Installation service is not running. Package actions disabled.' error in Gaia Portal - Software Updates - Status and Actions
Cause

The Gaia Software Updates Agent Service log file - /opt/CPInstLog/DeploymentAgent.log - has reached the size of 2 GB (verify with 'ls -lh /opt/CPInstLog/DeploymentAgent.log' command).

A failed state can occur where error messages are written infinitely in the loop into the log file, preventing the service from running since it cannot write to its own log file.

The log file will contain errors similar to these:

Error: Could not get installation dir of product SFWCMPmtrfesR75 from the registry.
Error: Could not get installation dir of product CVPN0CMP from the registry.
Error: Could not get installation dir of product NGXCMPP from the registry.
Error: Could not get installation dir of product SFWCMPmtrfesR75 from the registry.
Error: Could not get installation dir of product CVPN0CMP from the registry.
Error: Could not get installation dir of product NGXCMPP from the registry.
Error: Could not get installation dir of product SFWCMPmtrfesR75 from the registry.
