Updates in same major version number ?
 
May be already asked, sorry so !

But what is the best method when updating between
4.4 and 4.5
or
4.4 and 4.6
or
5.0 and 5.1

Is it ok to update only with 'yum update' cmd, with no risk ?

Thanks you for your support,

That is exactly how you update in point versions. Occasionally there might be
issues, but they are the exception. I remember a broken package back about the
4.2 to 4.3 upgrade. but it was resolved quickly. Usually if there is a yum or
rpm upgrade involved, it might be better to install those packages first, but
it might not happen again.

There is no special magic involved in a point release.

Yes. It is the standard way endorsed by the maintainers. They only
recommend against upgrades to new releases (e.g. 4.x->5.x).

I've gone from 4.2 (IIRC)->4.3->4.4...4.6 with almost no problems. The
only one requiring extra work was when the sqlite (IIRC) got updated.

Also keep in mind if you mix repositories, use priorities and/or include
and exclude commands in the repo files.
