How often Red Hat releases the RHEL patches and upgrades?

Solution Verified - Updated -


  • Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL)
    • All versions


  • What is the ETA for the upcoming patch and security releases?
  • What options are available to know if any patch released in the last few days?
  • Does Red Hat release patches (errata) on a certain schedule -- like another software company does on the second Tuesday of each month (I.e. "Patch Tuesday")


Red Hat does not have a fixed timeline for releasing patches and updates, therefore they are released whenever they become available.

Red Hat gives information about security flaws that affect Red Hat products and services in the form of security advisories.

To know how to get errata notification in RHSM, refer to the article How do I enable or disable errata alerts/notifications from Red Hat Subscription Management (RHSM)?
