  • Release: UIM 20.3.3
  • Component: Robot 9.33hf5
  • OS: RHEL 8.2


The current version of robot (which has to be upgraded) is not compatible with the OS.


For UIM Robot 9.33hf5, RHEL 8 is supported and minor versions are supported as well. RHEL 8.2 is supported.

The current robot 7.x is installed on RHEL 8.2, which is not compatible (though few customers monitor without any issues)

As the robot is not on a compatible version, the robot_update package is throwing errors when trying to upgrade to 9.33hf5.

Need to install freshly robot 9.33hf5 on RHEL 8.2
