Hi guys:

I saw the pelthora of threads where people had trouble moving to 4.4.  So 
I'm chicken now and I was trying to wait for the dust to settle,  I suppose 
it has and its been long enough I'm nervous about not upgrading.  I need to 
do a  a production server that is located in a data center far away so even 
more than normal I want a smooth upgrade.

Can someone tell the what the concensous was on the best way to do the 
upgrade and avoid problems.  From my notes I got:

yum upgrade python-sqlite
yum upgrade sqllite
yum upgrade yum
yum clean all
yum update

But at least one guy said his box was still hosed with duplicates and a 
broken bind after that.

What's the method to upgrade 4.3-> 4.4 with the highest change of sucess?

Thanks very much for the help.
