I have been using Node V5 inside the AWS EC2.
This time I need to update it but I got in problem, this is the memo how I solved it.
- AWS EC2
I need to update to Node V6 from V5, so I tried to
yum install the Node from the new repository.
yum keep using the old repository and does not use the new one, even I registered the new V6 repository for install.
The reason was
yum's cache keep holding the old repository so that I couldn’t update it.
What I needed to do is to clear the
yum's cache first.
# Remove old nodejs sudo su - yum remove -y nodejs # Remove old cache rm -rf /etc/yum.repos.d/nodesource-el.repo rm -fr /var/cache/yum/* yum clean all # Install Node v6 curl -sL https://rpm.nodesource.com/setup_6.x | bash - yum install -y nodejs
