Install and manage new software for your Linux OS environment using Yellowdog Updater, Modified (YUM). YUM is a tool that automatically updates the Linux OS over a network.

Complete the following steps to use YUM to update your OS environment:
  1. Edit the YUM configuration file:
    If you need a proxy server only, without a user, add the following line to the [main] section of the /etc/yum.conf file:
    PROXY=http://your.proxy.server:port
    If the proxy requires a user name and password, add the following lines to the yum.conf.
    proxy_username=yum-user 
    proxy_password=yum-user-password
  2. Complete the software updates.
    yum update openssl
  3. Validate the software version.
    openssl version
Your OS environment is updated.
