5.4 Applying Updates

When you have set up the ULN channels, Oracle Linux yum server repositories, or installation media repositories that yum should use, you can update all of the installed packages as follows:

# yum update

This command upgrades your system to the latest available update of Oracle Linux 7.

Use the following command to install or update a specific package:

# yum update package

For example, to install or update the Z-shell package (zsh), you would enter:

# yum update zsh
