YUM - Update a package

The yum update command is used to update a package. In this example, the latest version of the wget package is already installed on the system, thus the wget package will not be updated.

yum update wget

Loaded plugins: fastestmirror
Loading mirror speeds from cached hostfile

Following are commonly used yum commands.

Alternatively, the Ansible yum module can be used to automate the process of managing packages.
