Issue:
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
Environment:
Linux
Cause:
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" 
 
Resolution:
Workaround:
Replacing the line 77 of script unistartms by:
ulimit -n ${uxmaxfd} > /dev/null 2>&1

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

Fix version: Dollar Universe 6.9.61
Component: Univiewer Management Server
Release Date: 15th January 2019
