Status of Update Management on SFTP Gateway
Unfortunately, Update Management can't be used for security updates on SFTP Gateway v3: https://github.com/microsoft/OMS-Agent-for-Linux/issues/1458
The latest version of SFTP Gateway, version
3.003.05, is on Ubuntu 22.04, which is one of the most recent versions of Ubuntu.
One of the issues users may encounter with Ubuntu 22.04 is that it supports OpenSSL 3.x, and does not support OpenSSL 1.x, which is insecure. The
OmsAgentForLinux, which is used for Update Management, requires OpenSSL 1.x.
So, since SFTP Gateway is using Ubuntu 22.04 as its OS, we're unable to support Update Management for the VM in the Azure portal.
Even though we're unable to support Update Management due to the Operating System, there are other ways to make sure your VM is kept up to date. These include having to SSH into the VM and run updates manually, or install Ubuntu packages that perform automatic updates for you.
To manually run updates, you would generally run these commands:
