    I can’t upgrade, below are the commands and output.

    Some history: I  upgraded recently to free 4x and use it ok

    The message says:

    NoMachine Workstation appears to be installed on this host. Two
    different NoMachine packages can’t be installed at the same time on
    the same host. Be sure you uninstall NoMachine Workstation before
    installing NoMachine.

    This means exactly that. You can’t install a free NoMachine package on top of a Workstation package already installed.

    Did you try to update to version 5 using the automatic updates facility?

    But I didn’t install any Workstation.

    When I have hav 3x then I go to ur site and download free 4x RPM for Linux64.

    Could you pls tell me why do I have not free but Workstation?

    And how to have free-version now?

    Hmmm. Seems like a bug. If you only installed  the free version (I thought you had followed my advice in another post and downloaded the Workstation) on top of the old free, then in theory it should install without any problems. We’ll look into this. For now, here’s a workaround:

    1. Create file: sudo touch /usr/NX/etc/DisableBlockingScript

    2. Do the update again (NoMachine Free)

    3. Remove the file:
    sudo rm /usr/NX/etc/DisableBlockingScript

    As I understand Workstation will be suspended after 1 mo, when free-version won’t?

    I’d like my server not suspended…

    If you want the virtual Linux desktop functionality, then you need to purchase a license for the Workstation. We provide the evaluation software on the website without download restrictions. If you are evaluating and need more time, please contact our sales team with your scenario details.

    I’m not sure I understand you.

    I’ve use free 3x and want to use free 4x-5x.
    So I’ve download and upgrade server from free 3x to free 4x.
    But now (when I try to upgrade server from 4x to 5x) your system wrote me that I use not free but Workstation.

    But I do not want workstation.
    Could you pls specify exactly – what should I do now to get free not Workstation?

    Hello,

    In your case you shouldn’t get information about update blockade.
    In the next release this bug will be fixed. Thank you for reporting it.
    To do update you need:

    1. Create file:

    sudo touch /usr/NX/etc/DisableBlockingScript

    2. Do the update again (NoMachine Free):

    rpm -Uvh nomachine_5.0.43_1_x86_64.rpm

    3. Remove the file:

    sudo rm /usr/NX/etc/DisableBlockingScript

    I run:

    # /usr/NX/bin/nxserver –version
    NoMachine – Version 4.6.16

    # /usr/NX/bin/nxserver –subscription
    NX> 621 You appear to run an unsubscribed product. Please visit
    NX> 621 the NoMachine Web site at http://www.nomachine.com/
    NX> 621 to acquire a valid subscription.

    So – what version am I use? Free or Workstation?

    You have the free version of 4.6.16 installed: NoMachine – Version 4.6.16.

    If it were the Workstation evaluation package it would say:

    /usr/NX/bin/nxserver –version
    NoMachine Workstation Evaluation – Version 4.6.16

    –subscription is telling you that you don’t have a subscription, which you don’t. You are using the free version.
