    OK I contacted Cloudlinux to get support and they told me to uninstall the kernel care 

    yum remove kernelcare 

    Then reinstall it:

    curl -s | bash
    kcarectl --set-patch-type free --update


    Please note that in some cases, you'll get the following message:

    'free' patch type is unavailable for your kernel

    That means that the kernel you're running has been released very recently and there are no patches yet for it. 

    I think they are very slow in supporting kernel updates.... we shall see (I am using up to date kernel)
