How to patch the Ubuntu OS on AWS

Post aMiSTACX deployments, we recommend patching the Ubuntu OS before you start a new development project or a migration.

In our video, we walk through the steps, and the commands you will need to make use of:

sudo apt-get update

sudo apt-get upgrade

sudo apt autoremove

sudo apt install {packages}

We recommend an AMI backup image before you proceed, and unless you know what you are doing, don’t overwrite any system files; otherwise, the aMiSTACX pre-configured settings will be lost.

Note: If you deployed Magento Open Source with Elasticsearch, then you will also need to remove the Elasticsearch plugins, and re-install the upgrades. You can get the new version from the Elasticsearch logs.
