[Starlingx-discuss] How to update an installed image

StarlingX has two mechanisms for updating software on a running system:
- updates (also known as patching): This allows the user to build an updated version of a set of RPMs, bundle them into a patch file and apply them to a running system. We are also working on an update mechanism for containerized applications, which will allow new versions the docker images for an application to be deployed to a running system.
- upgrades: This allows the user to upgrade a running system from one StarlingX release to the next, including the OS, RPMs and applications. This mechanism will only be supported when moving between StarlingX releases - any fixes delivered to an existing release will use the update mechanism.

The update mechanism would be used to deliver a CVE fix (as per your example) to a running system.

Based on recommendations from Michael I am going to rewrite my question:

I have a server, all in one with STX simplex configuration but I
installed the ISO like a month ago, now I want to get the latest
version of STX

I think this a really important part of the project. I don't see
myself as sysadmin with a new CVE fixed in the latest version of
starling x and have to reinstall the full iso in all my nodes. I was
pretty sure we had this component like starling x update.

Any feedback more than welcome, if this is already a project under
development is perfect if not, we might spend some time discussing it

Something like preupg or update-manager in the case of Centos and Ubuntu
