Update/Upgrade to Version 7.8?

Hi, my servers are running on version 7.7:

[root@infra01 ~]# hostnamectl
   Static hostname: infra01.xxxxx.lan
         Icon name: computer-vm
           Chassis: vm
        Machine ID: xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
           Boot ID: xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
    Virtualization: kvm
  Operating System: NethServer 7.7.1908
       CPE OS Name: cpe:/o:centos:centos:7
            Kernel: Linux 3.10.0-1062.18.1.el7.x86_64
      Architecture: x86-64

How can I upgrade them with CLI or GUI?

As stated during announcement, upgrades for installed servers will be available next week (according to @giacomo).
Due to previous experience and current partial lockdown, i won’t update any installation for 2 weeks/1 month to 7.8. I may change my opinion from the experiences i will read on the community.

I’m not doubting on effort, skill, commitment and quality of the job of the dev team, but i’m expecting problems during the first experiences of 7.8.
I don’t need any upgrade of the one available with 7.8, therefore I do not have any goal to chase for this major release. But certainly my customers are not looking for issues in these times of difficult reach to the bare metal.


OK, thank you for your advice. I appreciate it…

To give you some ease of mind :slight_smile:

Just forced an update of my not to complex, but heavily personalized, X86_64 nethsever and no issue at all!
kuddo’s to the @dev_team from my side.


Thanks for your experience.
