How to upgrade
Follow these steps to upgrade CloudLinux 8.5 to 8.6 manually:
- Update the cloudlinux-release package:
# dnf install cloudlinux-release
- Do system upgrade:
# dnf update
Review the dnf output and accept the update.
CloudLinux 8.6 repos have fewer packages than CloudLinux releases before 8.5. Starting with version 8.5, CloudLinux is based on AlmaLinux, which is 1:1 RHEL or CentOS and doesn’t provide several devel and static packages. These packages are in the devel repo now that is disabled by default. If needed, you can enable the devel repo while installing packages, though it is not recommended to update from it or enable it permanently.
Here is an example:
# dnf --enablerepo=devel install bash-devel
