why the option uninstall not defined when performing upgrade

hi all


we notice about no option to un-install the installation of the rpm's ( when doing upgrade from 2.6.4 to 2.6.5 )

why?

@Michael Bronson

This is in intended behaviour in Ambari that it does not provide the "Uninstall" option.

Uninstalling binaries via some automated tasks/API may be risky as some fo the packages comes with a lots of dependencies. Hence there is no such option offered.

.

What is the reason that you want to uninstall a newly registered/installed HDP binary?
