Centos 6.1 to 6.5 urgrade

Post by navypop42 » 2019/01/01 18:09:54

I have just been assigned 3 Centos servers running CentOS release 6.10 (Final). I would like to upgrade to 6.7 or 7.x. I receive the
following message when doing yum update,
No Packages marked for Update


[murrayb@CityNetFlow ~]$ cat /etc/yum.conf
[main]
cachedir=/var/cache/yum/$basearch/$releasever
keepcache=0
debuglevel=2
logfile=/var/log/yum.log

obsoletes=1
gpgcheck=1
plugins=1
installonly_limit=5
bugtracker_url=http://bugs.centos.org/set_project.php? ... tegory=yum

6.10 is the current/latest version of CentOS 6. Changing to 6.5 would be a downgrade since 6.10 is not "six point one zero" but "six point ten".

An easy upgrade path to CentOS 7 is not available, i.e. must be upgraded by re-install.

6.10 is the current CentOS 6 and has nearly 2 more years of security updates left before it goes EOL in late 2020. If you are up to date then running uname -r should say 2.6.32-754.9.1.el6.x86_64 and rpm -q glibc should say glibc-2.12-1.212.el6.x86_64.
CentOS 5 died in March 2017 - migrate NOW!
