688 base updates out of the blue?

Post by JackD » 2018/12/04 15:01:24

I have CentOS 7 running now for a couple of months and these last weeks there were not any updates.

I do a yum update today and its updating like 688 packages now.

Looking at:
https://lists.centos.org/pipermail/cent ... hread.html

I see no packages updates at all.

Being a new CentOS user this surprises me allot. Is this normal?

Yes it's normal when a new point release comes out - CentOS 7.6 was released yesterday, following on from the release of RHEL 7.6 at the end of October.
CentOS 6 died in November 2020 - migrate to a new version!

CentOS 5 is dead, do not use it.
