Updating OS packages when using ansible role

How is it recommended to run OS updates on the ES nodes that are maintained by the ansible role. Should the ES and Java packages be version locked, and will that effect upgrading the nodes later?

I would recommend that you lock the elasticsearch versions, and java if you are not using the built-in java sdk, to avoid any problems.

On my infrastructure all upgrades are only applied after reading the release notes and checking if it won't be a problem upgrading.

Will the lock interfere with the Ansible role?
