Pulp 2.13.3 is now Generally Available in the stable repositories:

This release includes bug fixes for Pulp Platform, RPM Plugin, and the Puppet Plugin.


The Pulp 2 stable repositories are included in the pulp repo files:

After enabling the pulp-stable or pulp-2-stable repository, you’ll want to follow the standard upgrade path with migrations:

$ sudo systemctl stop httpd pulp_workers pulp_resource_manager pulp_celerybeat pulp_streamer goferd
$ sudo yum upgrade
$ sudo -u apache pulp-manage-db
$ sudo systemctl start httpd pulp_workers pulp_resource_manager pulp_celerybeat pulp_streamer goferd

The pulp_streamer and goferd services should be omitted if those services are not installed.
