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 https://github.com/elastic/kibana/issues/7142 which references https://github.com/elastic/kibana/pull/6674

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.

Thanks,
Lee
