I know of installations ( not mine :) ) which have a > "yum -y update " run from cron.daily Against CentOS 8 Stream? I'd be surprised. I'd consider it on a test server or cluster with some regression tests to keep an eye on what is coming down the pike, but I normally wouldn't do it to any host or container I used for anything like a production environment. I've generally been *paid* for high reliability environments. Regression issues are too frequent, especially if somebody has been doing "pip install" or "gem install" as a root user, or does things like multiple JDK installations. There's nothing like an update to the openjdk 8 to overwrite the default settings of the openjdk 11 on the same machine to make people throw tools at you, even if you warned them.
