Perform YUM update or not?

So I hooked up an email address to my new installation of RockStor and have been receiving notifications about the available packages for update via Yum. My question, though, is that should I update these packages via Yum or should I only perform the upgrades when a new version of Rockstor is available via the standard update method in the web UI?

I just dont want to encounter some package/dependency problem if I update via a non-standard method as far as RockStor is concerned.


Hi @t3kka,
my 2 cents: actually you can perform yum update, no issues on dev env with latest yum updates (24 feb 2017)

I’ve done both with no ill effects. There isn’t magic behind the UI upgrade option, it’s just calling yum from what I can tell.

Yup update went smooth and no issues identified at the moment :slight_smile: Thanks!
