  • If you have automatic updates enabled your running system should be the same or later than the install iso because updates are released weekly. The iso is a picture of the updates at the point in time when it was created. If you install from an old iso, it will update to the newer version automatically.

    The advantages of installing from a newer iso are:

    • More up to date kernel so, hopefully, more hardware compatibility
    • Less updates needed straight after installation
    • In this case (7.9 iso), a more up to date yum-marketplace-plugin which can allow us to change the back end settings to something resilient without causing a marketplace problem if you happen to be offline during the first-run wizard.
