An agent update on a PC running Linux operating systems is handled manually. The commands for updating depend on the package manager that is installed on your system. These commands must be entered in the terminal on your PC:

APT (Debian/Ubuntu)
sudo apt-get update & sudo apt-get install yaware

YUM (Fedora/CentOS)
yum clean all & yum install yaware

DNF (Fedora)
dnf clean all & dnf install yaware

Also, if your system is set up with automatic software updates, then the Yaware client will be updated automatically with each update of the system.

To remotely upgrade agent, you must connect to each PC via ssh and run the same commands as with a regular upgrade.

The update on a PC running the MacOS operating system is done manually. You can download the new version in two ways:

Then, select the “Update” item in the side menu. If you have an outdated version of the agent installed on your PC, You can download the new version by clicking on “Download”
