I tend to call this new install and not update.
: 'yum update' updates to the latest minor version (like 6.4 to 6.5), unless you specifically don't prevent this. Updates to the next major version (like 5.x to 6.x) are more challenging. -- TiN

: 5.x to 6.a - upgrade (never do this on a production system and its not supported) 6.x to 6.y - update you can also do a partially update - lets say just security relevant stuff. You need to have "yum-plugin-security" installed $ yum install yum-plugin-security and then compare the output of $ yum --security update vs. $ yum update -- LF
: No difference. Running "yum upgrade" is the same as running "yum update" with the "--obsoletes" flag set, but for some time now, "obsoletes=1" has been the default setting in /etc/yum.conf. -- Bob Nichols "NOSPAM" is really part of my email address. Do NOT delete it.
