Using yum update to upgrade from Kibana 4.4.1 to 4.4.2

(Chad Burkins) #1

I'm running the ELK stack on RHEL 6.7. I installed via the Repository using the "yum install" command.

I would now like to update from Kibana 4.4.1 to Kibana 4.4.2. In my dev environment, I ran "yum update kibana". Seemed to work, but now kibana is missing from /etc/passwd.

Can anyone help me ? Is this the wrong way to upgrade Kibana ?

Hi Chad,

It should be the right way to upgrade, but there's a bug that probably existed in versions 4.4.1 up through 4.5.

See which references

It's fixed in the master branch which will be released as 5.0.0.

For now, the best option is probably to uninstall, and reinstall again.
