Installs Greenplum Database extensions in
.gppkg format, such as PL/Java, PL/R, PostGIS, and MADlib, along with their dependencies, across an entire cluster.

The Greenplum Package Manager (
gppkg) utility installs Greenplum Database extensions, along with any dependencies, on all hosts across a cluster. It will also automatically install extensions on new hosts in the case of system expansion and segment recovery.
After a major upgrade to Greenplum Database, you must download and install all
Examples of database extensions and packages software that are delivered using the Greenplum Package Manager are:

$GPHOME. Carries over packages from one version of Greenplum Database to another.

In general, it is best to avoid using the
--migrateoption, and packages should be reinstalled, not migrated. See Upgrading from 6.x to a Newer 6.x Release.
When migrating packages, these requirements must be met.
