I've entered "yum update" from SSH. But I enter "N" for no to update. I'm afraid If that was safe or risk. I'll keep database and FTP files safe.

Code:

Hello,

Yes, you generally should keep your system packages updated. Note that EasyApache 4 packages are also handled through YUM, so you are missing out on EasyApache 4 updates if you choose to not update.

Thank you.

Hello,

This suggests there's an issue with your system's ability to access files from it's YUM repo mirrors. You can try running the following command to see if it helps:

Code:
yum clean all
It's also possible the specific mirror your server is using does not yet have the CentOS 7.4 RPMs synced to it. The CentOS forums are likely a better resource, as this particular issue isn't related to the cPanel software:

CentOS 7 - General Support - CentOS

Thank you.

Hi,

From the error you gave, it clearly points out that the mirror URL is not accessible either completely or only through your server network. You will have to try different mirror and update the repo first for the one that is causing the issue.

I'm running on CentOS 7.3, I guess. Do I need to update CentOS 7.4 or just stay 7.3?

Hi,

From the error you gave, it clearly points out that the mirror URL is not accessible either completely or only through your server network. You will have to try different mirror and update the repo first for the one that is causing the issue.
yum clean then yum update and upgrade to CentOS 7.4 will be solved?

You can try that to see if it helps, yes. Note that there's not a separate process for updating to CentOS 7.4. The "yum update" command is what updates the version.

Thank you.

Oh, CentOS 7.3 to 7.4 it's impossible? Would be lost of MySQL database and WHM/cPanel system settings, Others file?
No, it's fine to update to CentOS 7.4. The "yum update" command will do this for you automatically. You won't lose settings, as it's not a major upgrade (e.g. CentOS 6 to CentOS 7).

Thank you.
