Set Up Individual Package Files

This section describes how to upgrade MapR software using individual package files.

You can download package files, store them locally, and then install MapR from the files. This option is typically used to upgrade clusters that are not connected to the internet.

Platform-specific upgrade repositories are hosted at: https://package.mapr.com/releases/v<version>/<platform>/mapr-v<version>GA-upgrade.<rpm/deb>.tgz.

See MapR Repositories and Packages for more information about repositories and packages.

To upgrade MapR using individual package files, you need to first pre-install the MapR package dependencies on each node. See the Packages and Dependencies for MapR Software for the dependency packages required for the MapR services that you are installing. Manually download the packages and install them.

  1. Using a machine connected to the internet, download the tarball for the MapR components and the Hadoop ecosystem components, substituting the appropriate <platform>, <version>, and <datestamp>.
    For example: https://package.mapr.com/releases/v<version>/ubunto/mapr-v<version>GA-upgrade.deb.tgz
  2. Extract the tarball to a local directory, either on each node or on a local network accessible by all nodes.
    tar -xvzf <product_package>.tgz
