Why does omnibus use install instead of update?


When upgrading omnibus installs, the page https://about.gitlab.com/update/ shows using install commands for the YUM and APT package managers. Why is update not the preferred method?

Ta, T

You mean why not do apt-get upgrade or yum update? I guess we want to be explicit, since you may not want to upgrade your whole system. You can use whatever method you want.

For example, one could use sudo yum update gitlab-ce to update just gitlab using yum afaik
