Difficulties encountered during update from previous versions

globally before any updates during the alpha phase you should always update smeserver-yum and smeserver-support first:
yum update smeserver-yum smeserver-support --enablerepo=smeupdates-testing
signal-event yum-modify

yum update 
signal-event post-upgrade; signal-event reboot

1- you might encounter an error for a missing key for REMI rpms.

Public key for php-pear-1.10.3-1.el7.remi.noarch.rpm is not installed

solution: pick one of those:

yum update smeserver-yum --enablerepo=smeupdates-testing -y
signal-event yum-modify
yum update --enablerepo=smeupdates-testing
signal-event post-upgrade; signal-event reboot

alternatively you could

yum update --enablerepo=smeupdates-testing --exclude=php-pear
signal-event yum-modify
yum update --enablerepo=smeupdates-testing
signal-event post-upgrade; signal-event reboot

or

yum update --enablerepo=smeupdates-testing --nogpgcheck


2- you might encounter a conflict between centos samba rpm and SME locally builtsamba rpms:


yum update smeserver-support smeserver-yum -y
signal-event yum-modify
then proceed to regular update
yum update
