    yum check-updates will show latest updates available for your version.

    If you want those updates type yum -y update

    Be aware that the freepbx updates could be in with the updates and you would need to exclude those from updates if you have a newer version of freepbx,or it wil break your system

    I've posted this before for someone with a similar question. In addition to the recommendations from Dave, one thing you can do to ensure that an upgrade doesn't break your Elastix system is to enable rolling back of RPM packages. Every time you go to upgrade an existing package, yum will repack the existing version and store it on the system.

    You can find a guide on how to enable roll back here:

    You can also install etckeeper which will setup versioning of your /etc directory. It also includes a yum plugin that automatically versions any configuration changes when you perform a yum update. You can find a guide on how to use it here:

    Hope this helps.
