The output indicates that the currently installed version of
stx-openstack is 21.07-0.
<version>

The version to update the application to.

and the following is a positional argument which must come last:

<tar_file>

The tar file containing the application manifest, Helm charts and configuration file.

Note

In a Distributed Cloud configuration the System Controllers should be upgraded before the subclouds.

Procedure

  1. Retrieve the latest StarlingX OpenStack application tarball, stx-openstack-<major>.<minor>-patch.tgz, from a StarlingX mirror.

    Note

    The major-minor version is based on the current product release version. The patch version will change within the release based on incremental updates.

  2. Source the environment.

    $ source /etc/platform/openrc
    ~(keystone_admin)$
    
  3. Update the application.

    This will upload the software version and automatically apply it to the system.

    For example:

    ~(keystone_admin)$ system application-update stx-openstack-21.07-0.tgz
  4. Monitor the status of the application-apply operation until it has completed successfully.

    ~(keystone_admin)$ system application-show stx-openstack
