yum check-update package_name
Where package_name is the search term for which you wish to search for updates. Please note that you can include wild-card values in the search term. To use yum update to install an updated package, use the command:
yum update package_name
Where package_name is the name of the package you wish to update. Include wild-card values in the update command to update multiple related packages with a single command. For example, use the following command:
Please note that the yum update command will only perform an update between minor releases; to update between major releases, you should use pg_upgrade. For more information about using pg_upgrade, see Section 8.
