Please, follow these steps to upgrade CloudLinux 8.5 to 8.6 manually: 1. Update cloudlinux-release package from rollout slot ``` # dnf --enablerepo=cloudlinux-rollout-5-bypass install cloudlinux-release ``` 2. Do system upgrade ``` # dnf update ``` Review dnf output and accept the update. ::: warning CloudLinux 8.6 repos have fewer packages than CloudLinux releases before 8.5. Starting with version 8.5, CloudLinux is based on AlmaLinux, which is 1:1 RHEL or CentOS and doesn't provide several devel and static packages. These packages are in `devel` repo now that is disabled by default. If needed, you can enable `devel` repo while installing packages, though it is not recommended to update from it or enable it permanently. Here is an example: ``` # dnf --enablerepo=devel install bash-devel ``` :::
