I installed centos 6.5 from a dvd. Now that 7 is out, I'l like to try it. I tried:
sudo yum clean all && sudo yum update

Major releases are 'before the dot', eg 5.x and 6.x as far as I see, and minor changes after that.
If I do a yum update on a 6.1 system, will it update to 6.current?
Is it possible to safely upgrade from 6.x to 6.y via yum update?

I have been meaning to ask this question for a long time now. I usually use the terminal... apt-get update&apt-get upgrade command to check for updates every morning. Some times, as this morning, the message appeared that some packages are being kept back.
Let's say I open the Update Manager, and my package list is a couple of days old, or I do apt-get upgrade without doing an apt-get update first, what is the result of this?
If there have been updates since I last did a 'check' in the Update Manager, do I not get the latest version? Or do I simply not get updates on packages which had not updates at the time of my last check?

I had a machine with Ubuntu Server Edition version 12. A month or so ago when I logged in on the system I had a message that I had to upgrade to version 14. I did this. However now when I login I always get:
0 packages can be updated.
0 updates are security updates.
Is this normal? Before I remember I always had packages to update!
