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

    7d084be8-6e3c-4234-95c3-9b0956624af2

      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?

       

      Thanks,

      W
