Is the --upgrade flag still valid for Katello 4.3 (foreman-installer --scenario katello --upgrade)?



I am wondering if the --upgrade flag is still valid for upgrading from Katello 4.2.1 to 4.3.1

Found a website on the Net here (Foreman Upgrade with Katello in 3 easy steps) that says to run:

foreman-installer --scenario katello --upgrade

When upgrading.

However, Upgrading and Updating Foreman

says to use:

foreman-installer (with no upgrade flag)

I did a foreman-installer --help | grep -i upgrade and also a man foreman-installer and don’t see such a flag referenced. Just want to verify before we try this in Production. :slight_smile: :cowboy_hat_face:

Foreman and Proxy versions:

3.0 going to 3.1

Foreman and Proxy plugin versions:

Katello 4.2.1 going to 4.3.1

Distribution and version:

CentOS 7.9

Thank you,



the --upgrade flag has been dropped from the installer a few versions before, I think it was with Katello 3.17/Foreman 2.2
You simply run foreman-installer after your yum update now without any special options and should be good in general. :slight_smile:


Cool, cheers @areyus!

Appreciate the information,
