While using an FTP command like mget to pull files with a wildcard you get the following error
Can't check for file existence
This change was not made by cPanel and was done by the pure-ftpd developers. The only workaround is to downgrade the FTP server and prevent updates. This is not at all recommended though.
As a workaround, an older version of pure-ftpd can be used by doing the following. This will prevent future updated of the FTP server though.
/usr/local/cpanel/scripts/update_local_rpm_versions --edit target_settings.pure-ftpd unmanaged
rpm -e pure-ftpd-1.0.49-1.cp1186.x86_64
rpm -ivh http://httpupdate.cpanel.net/RPM/11.86/centos/7/x86_64/pure-ftpd-1.0.47-2.cp1186.x86_64.rpm
