CentOS 7.7 hasn't gone through the full QA round yet, but you can already get the 7.7 packages via the Continuous Release repository with yum update --enablerepo=cr. The .iso images will be released once all the bits in 7.7 have passed QA.

If you have EPEL packages installed, you may need to use --enablerepo=cr,epel-testing if you run into dependency problems.

For information on the Continuous Release repository please see http://wiki.centos.org/AdditionalResour ... itories/CR

yum --enablerepo=cr update

You may need to add epel-testing to the enablerepo list if you have errors on EPEL packages without.
