Glances appears to have been manually modified

My YunoHost server

Hardware: VPS bought online
YunoHost version:
I have access to my server : Through SSH & through the webadmin
Are you in a special context or did you perform some particular tweaking on your YunoHost instance ? : no

Description of my issue

The new diagnosis fuction gives me the following error:

Configuration file /etc/default/glances appears to have been manually modified.

This is probably OK if you know what you’re doing! YunoHost will stop updating this file automatically… But beware that YunoHost upgrades could contain important recommended changes. If you want to, you can inspect the differences with yunohost tools regen-conf glances --dry-run --with-diff and force the reset to the recommended configuration with yunohost tools regen-conf glances --force

I ran yunohost tools regen-conf glances --force

This gave me the following error:

  dry_run: false
  force: true
  list_pending: false

Merf I thought I burned all the glances stuff a long time ago but apparently nope …

Imho you can just ignore this warning and I’ll try to push a fix that gets rid of some remaining stuff somehow.


Hi Aleks thank you for solving the solution, very well impressive.
