Updating Repo Packages

  1. Log into your servers command line.
  2. Run the following command to download any updates from your current repositories.
    yum -y update
  3. Generally it is a good practice to run the following to clear any cached data regarding the installed packages as this can take up a lot of disk space.
    yum clean all

Congratulations, now you know how to update repo packages on CentOS!
