Operating system updates#

NethServer 8 is installed on top of GNU/Linux distributions and tries to preserve default configurations as much as possible. It’s up to the system administrator to choose how the operating system updates are applied.

Usually, it’s a good practice to apply security updates as soon as possible. But, even if NethServer depends on few packages, not all system administrators feel confident about automatic updates.

Please, take a look to your distribution documentation:


It’s not recommended to enable automatic updates on CentOS Stream, since it is considered a preview of next RHEL stable release. Updates could bring major releases of podman and SELinux policies introducing unexpected bugs.
