Yum Update Dependency Error


Have a CentOS 7.6 vanilla install and installed OD 0.7.0 with no problem and all working as expected. Have tried to yum update and received the following:

Do I need to update a repo or settings or easier to start again with 0.7.1?


Hi @manicminer
Can you try to run ‘yum update opendistroforelasticsearch’ to update opendistroforelasticsearch. Thanks

Many thanks so that ran (output below) but not sure it has resolved the issue as re-running yum update displays the original errors:

yum update will update elasticsearch version. The opendistroforelasticsearch is distributed for a specific version of elasticsearch for each release. That is why yum update will have error msg since it is trying to update elasticsearch version.

Ok then, so in order to update the OS successfully any references to ES/Kibana etc need to be excluded from the yum directive? If this is the case, at which point can (should) the OSS ES be updated ?

Many thanks for the clarification - will wait a while and see how things progress!
