Hey guys. Quick one here. Been running my FreePBX server for a while now without too many dramas, but I figured it’s time for kernel and security updates. I’m currently running FreePBX 188.8.131.52.
However, when I logged in via SSH and ran “yum upgrade”, I receive the following error message after pressing “y” to upgrade, and the upgrade stops after that:

It is highly recommended that you instead just switch your application to Unicode strings.
