Steps for Properly Updating your Server:
The simplest way to update your CentOS/RHEL Operating System is to run the following command:
yum update -y
Things to consider are the following:
- Do NOT end this task early as you may stop the update during a kernel update which may cause your Operating System to not boot properly when rebooted.
- You can drop the -y portion of the review each update before proceeding. The -y portion skips these checks.
