    How to upgrade OracleLinux 7.6 to 7.7 (but not to the newest 7.8)


      I have an issue with Oracle Linux 7.6. I want to upgrade it to 7.7 version. The 7.8 was released last month, but I don't want to use it. I want to upgrade just 7.6->7.7 and stay (it's on AWS distributed by clckwrk).


      When I use "yum update" it upgrades to the latest available (so 7.8). I don't know how to force it to update to "one update below the newest".


      I'm not happy with upgrading one package by one. There must be a way to do it automatically. How can I "exclude" 7.8?


      I tried with "echo '7.7' > /etc/yum/vars/releasever" but with no luck. Still upgrades to 7.8


      Any possible solutions?


      Another question - does it make sense to upgrade to 7.7, when 7.8 is released? 7.7 will not get patches, when 7.8 is released?
