Upgrading a Linux installation v13

If you have an existing EDB ODBC connector RPM installation, you can use yum or dnf to upgrade your repository configuration file and update to a more recent product version. To update the edb.repo file, assume superuser privileges and enter:

  • On RHEL or CentOS 7:

    yum upgrade edb-repo

  • On RHEL or Rocky Linux or AlmaLinux 8:

    dnf upgrade edb-repo

yum or dnf will update the edb.repo file to enable access to the current EDB repository, configured to connect with the credentials specified in your edb.repo file. Then, you can use yum or dnf to upgrade any installed packages:

  • On RHEL or CentOS 7:

    yum upgrade edb-odbc

    yum upgrade edb-odbc-devel

  • On RHEL or Rocky Linux or AlmaLinux 8:

    dnf upgrade edb-odbc

    dnf upgrade edb-odbc-devel
