    When I run kcarectl -u on a server, I get:

    Unable to apply patch (/var/cache/kcare/918f56f271523f17cdd9486fa16bb0ef7d378e40/1/kpatch.bin 1 255 CentOS 2.6.32-573.3.1.el6.x86_64, FREEZE)

    This usually means that KernelCare cannot safely patch the kernel, because it is sits in a function we are trying to patch.
    The issue usually clears up in 4 hours automatically, or you can retry few times using kcarectl -u

    We can provide you with more info on what preventing patch from being applied right now if you could provide dmesg output.
    You can send it to us to
