You can update only the Photon OS packages that have published security advisories, and ignore the packages with non-security updates.
If your environment consists of a vCloud Director appliance, you can apply security patches to the Photon OS by using directly the YUM-compatible package manager tdnf.
Applying updates to the Photon OS does not update the vCloud Director build.
- Verify that there are security updates for the installed packages.
tdnf updateinfo list
- (Optional) To see more details about all published security advisories, run the following command:
tdnf updateinfo info
- Update the packages with security advisories.
tdnf upgrade --security
- Restart the appliance.
- Repeat the procedure for each vCloud Director appliance.
