Command to Update Asterisk


I have installed [color=#0000BF]Asterisk 10.4.2 [/color]on Fedora 17 64 Bits running on VMWare* I wish to update Asterisk to [color=#0000BF] Asterisk 10.5.1[/color]. When I make the yum update asterisk command I receive this.

[root@Asterisk ~]# yum update asterisk
Loaded plugins: langpacks, presto, refresh-packagekit
updates/metalink | 17 kB 00:00
Package(s) asterisk available, but not installed.
No Packages marked for Update
[root@Asterisk ~]#

Asterisk is installed but can not be updated :question: Any help will be welcome.


*( I know that using asterisk and virtual machine don’t go well together, I intend to install a Cisco 7970 phone and soft phone but this is only for test & learning purpose only. :smile: )

Looks more like a Fedora problem then an asterisk problem.

What if you do yum install asterisk?

Or you could remove asterisk and reinstall it.

Or compile it from source directly.

Thanks for replies

Is this ok [y/N]:

But after installed the update of asterisk the asterisk-gui no longer work, the .conf file are correctly set.
