#3180 Cluster Webmin Upgrade fails with .deb package


I am trying to use the Upgrade Webmin to update all of our Debian Servers with the most recent version.

When I use a .deb package in the "From ftp or http URL" field(http://internap.dl.sourceforge.net/sourceforge/webadmin/webmin_1.420_all.deb), I get the following error:

Failed to upgrade from URL http://internap.dl.sourceforge.net/sourceforge/webadmin/webmin_1.420_all.deb : Not a valid Webmin tar file

    Was Webmin installed from a .deb package on the remote system originally? If not, you must updated from the same package format used originally, which looks to be a tar.gz package.

    The Cluster Webmin node was installed from a .deb package. The cluster node that I am trying to remote upgrade using the Cluster Webmin module was also installed using a .deb package.

    Let me know if you need any more details.

    I took a look at the source differences between

    I am not a perl programmer, but it looks like a lot of code dealing with rpm's and deb packages exists in the webmin/upgrade, but not the cluster version.
