4.6 Browsing Available Errata for a System

You can download a comma-separated values (CSV) report file of the errata that are available for a specific system registered on ULN and download any available errata RPMs, individually. You can also browse all of the available advisories that are available on ULN and download the errata RPMs for the supported combinations of the software release and the system architecture.

To download a CSV report or the errata RPMs for a specific system:

  1. Log in to https://linux.oracle.com with your ULN user name and password.

  2. On the Systems tab, click the link named for the system in the list of registered machines.

    The System Details page lists the available errata for the system in the Available Errata table, which might be split over several pages.

  3. To download the CSV report file, click the link Download All Available Errata for this System.

  4. To see more detail about an advisory and to download the RPMs:

    1. Click the link for the advisory.

    2. On the System Errata Detail page for an advisory, you can download the RPMs for the affected releases and system architectures.

    Note that updating the system by using the yum update command directly on the affected system, downloads these RPMs and updates the system with all available errata updates.

To browse all available advisories and download errata RPMs:

  1. Log in to https://linux.oracle.com with your ULN user name and password.

  2. Select the Errata tab.

    The Errata page displays a table of the available errata for all releases that are available on ULN.

    • To sort the table of available errata, click the title of the Type, Severity, Advisory, Systems Affected, or Release Date column. Click the title again to reverse the order of sorting.

      Note

    • To display only advisories for a certain release of Oracle Linux or Oracle VM, select that release from the Release drop-down list and click Go.

    • To search within the table, enter a string in the Search field and click Go.
