Upgrade from CentOs6.4 to CentOs6.6 with latest Kernel

Goal:

 Upgrade CentOs 6.4 to CentOs6.5 with the latest Kernel. In my case, I was expecting a kernel version of 3.10

Solution:

I have tried many things, but what worked for me are the following commands in the order specified:

yum update -y  #Updates all packages
yum update centos* -y # Updates Centos release to 6.6
reboot 
yum update kernel* -y # Updates the Kernel to 3.10 (which was the latest available kernel at this point of time
reboot
Login and now you are on Centos 6.6 with 3.10 Kernel


I hope it helps.
