Linux Updates

1 min read

CentOS and RHEL publish regular security updates and we recommend they are applied as they become available. We have yet to see a security update conflict with CloudShark and we test these updates generally the same day they are published.

That said, it is always a good practice to take regular backups of any computer, both automatically and also right before any new software is installed. Read our backup instructions for information on how to create a backup of your CloudShark system.

To view the list of uninstalled security related upgrades run:

yum --security check-update

To install these packages:

yum --security update
