Hello. I'm seeing this patch in yum check-update on my server since 23rd October:

kernel.x86_64 1:2.6.32-954.3.5.lve1.4.58.el6 cloudlinux-x86_64-server-6

However, kcare suggests the kernel is up to date:

# kcarectl -i
> kpatch-state: patch is applied
> kpatch-for: Linux version 2.6.32-896.16.1.lve1.4.54.el6.x86_64

# kcarectl --check The latest

Any idea why it is showing in yum please?

KernelCare updates only security bugs/stability bugs in kernel. It doesn't change the whole kernel.
That is why yum shows available updates.

Thanks Vladimir, yum update gave me the latest.

So, presumably I dont need to restart the server?

Thanks in advance.

There's no need to restart the server when KernelCare is running and updating the running kernel.
