The following error is being shown in the schedule_log file when trying to update any ppm packages manually for PureMessge for Unix:
$ ppm verify --upgrade PureMessage-Sophos-Data --force While verifying package 'PureMessage-Sophos-Data': Error verifying file '/tmp/dICgcJVkBZ/PureMessage-Sophos-Data.ppd': mkdir /opt/pmx/var/tmp//validation/file_cache: refuse permission at /PerlApp/PPM/PureMessage/Utils.pm line 34 Can't remove directory /opt/pmx/var/tmp//validation/downloader: refuse permission at /puremessage/puremessage5.2/bin/ppm line 117
First seen in PureMessage for Unix 5.4
The error shows that the PureMessage is failing to create a folder under the /opt/pmx/var/tmp/ directory.
chmod 777 /opt/pmx/var/tmp/ chown pmx:pmx /opt/pmx/var/tmp/
Issue should now be resolved.
