Hi Konstantin

In this moment, I'm deploying and therefore I can upgrade every
component... I have recently executed "yum upgrade -y" in order to update
all operating system components.

And please, apollogize me but In your lines I am not able to find the
answer to my questions.

Please, can you clarify?

Thanks a lot!
