Is it always safe to run apt-get update and apt-get upgrade on my Sentora server
[Not Solved] Is it always safe to run apt-get update and apt-get upgrade on my Sentora server
Dear Sentora support team and user community,

I have used the Sentora control panel for several years now, and have only ran these commands (apt-get update and apt-get upgrade) when required, due to some web application asking for an updated version of some software I have installed on my server.

However, I would just like confirmation by the support team on whether or not it's safe to run these commands on my server running Sentora. I think it's important to run, as the server will get the needed security updates, but I worry it will break something in Sentora. Do I need to have this concern?

I'm aware that Sentora does not yet support php7, nor does it support upgrading to Ubuntu 16.04, so I won't be doing this. But I believe the Ubuntu Apt-get Update and Apt-get Upgrade only upgrade minor versions of the installed server software. Therefore, does this mean, it is safe to run these commands on a monthly basis to keep the server secure and updated with the most recent software or can it break my sentora control panel?

Thank you for your support!
Thanks given by:
