Version 64 support ended March 3rd last year. But the minor release which is 6.6 ends on the 31 oct this Year,  while the current minor release of 6.8 will be supported until at least 30 nov 2020:

So I suggest you update to version 6.8

Echo rindi's suggestion. Redhat updates maintain all major versions of... So as to not introduce a conflict where functionality declines.

Meaning if you do not have self compiled apps, drivers, there should not be any issues.
If you do have some special hardware, make sure to compile the drivers into the new kernel that ones with the 6.8/6.9 before you reboot unless you have DKMS setup that during bootup would compile/add configured drivers.
