CloudLinux OS 8.2 Released

Jul 1, 2020 8:01:45 PM / by Ivan Zhmud



I'm very pleased to announce that a new CloudLinux OS 8.2 has been scheduled for gradual rollout from our production repository and will be available for all customers in a week.

You can find upstream release notes here:

Notable Changes

Known issues

  • You may see the 8.1 version and name in a grub2 menu entry. Our kernel developers are working on a new RHEL 8.2 version based kernel and it will be available soon. The rest of the system is up-to-date with the latest packages.

How to upgrade

Due to the changed repository structure in this release, you should update the cloudlinux-release package first:

dnf install cloudlinux-release

You can also install it from the bypass repository if you really don’t want to wait until the gradual rollout phase will be completed:

dnf install cloudlinux-release --disablerepo=* --enablerepo=cloudlinux-rollout-2-bypass

If you previously did any changes in the /etc/yum.repos.d/cloudlinux.repo file manually, dnf will not update it automatically for you. Then you will need to do the following:

mv /etc/yum.repos.d/cloudlinux.repo /etc/yum.repos.d/cloudlinux.repo.old-8.1
mv /etc/yum.repos.d/cloudlinux.repo.rpmnew /etc/yum.repos.d/cloudlinux.repo

After the cloudlinux-release package upgrade is finished, do the full system upgrade using the following command:

dnf upgrade
