Node Settings / Objects / Autopatch Packages cannot be imported in UVMS on Linux in case the user starting UVMS has a "ulimit -Hn" value inferior to 8000.
This can be checked via the pseudo-file /proc/UVMS_PID/limits
Instead of modifying the "Max open files", the "Max file size" is set to 8000 which is not correct. 

A correct output should be something like this:

[root@hostname]# more /proc/UVMS_PID/limits
Limit                     Soft Limit           Hard Limit           Units
Max file size             unlimited            unlimited            bytes
Max open files            8000                 8192                 files
Problem caused by the following line in the script unistartms on Linux:
"ulimit -n ${uxmaxfd} >/dev/null 2>&1 || ulimit ${uxmaxfd} >/dev/null 2>&1" 
Replacing the line 77 of script unistartms by:
ulimit -n ${uxmaxfd} > /dev/null 2>&1

Update to a fix version listed below or a newer version if available.
