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.
