Functional (non-security) patches for RHEL 7 & ubuntu LT16.04


How do I get RHEL 7 &  Ubuntu LT16.04 functional

(ie non-security) patches (a list of them will do) for

the period Jan 2022 to Feb 2023?


I don't have access to Redhat support portal anymore.

For RHEL, , maybe CentOS patches can work? (never tested that though), Maybe converting to CentOS7 is a viable option, then you have supported fixes up to June 2024.
Or completely migrate to ALMA/Rocky - Linux distro's that picked up the ball that CentOS dropped. AFAICT they can migrate CentOS 8 -> Rocky / ALMA Linux 8...
Alternatively: you can create a developer account with RedHat and subscribe a local system to it, and then get all the RPMs there and transfer them to your system... (also never tried that).

Ubuntu is EOL....., for running it on "modern" CPU's not supported (Hardware Enablement) in original kernels  you can install a "fresh" kernel on the old system.
As you can see in the EOL tables, Ubuntu 16 support ended, with the exception of HWE (which lasts unti April 2024)

For Ubuntu it is high time to move on... If you use 22.04 LTS you can go a long way. (still needs to come out though, april 2022), it isn't on the site yet, but i expect 22 (even versions mostly get it) to also become an LTS version until 2032. or there is 20.04 LTS with support until 2030.

>Ubuntu 16 support ended
We're on custom Ubuntu ie
it's an appliance that builds
its OS from Ubuntu 16.04 so
reckon it's still supported.

Purpose is not to move to
CentOS 7;  we're Ok on
RHEL7 (or even upgrade
to RHEL8) but just wanted
the list of functional patches
which I guess the following
helps:
yum update --exclude=kernel*    /*to get non-security updates only*/
