DataStax Upgrade Guide

Upgrade installation instructions for Debian-based distributions

This procedure shows how to install a new version of Datastax Enterprise using the Advanced Package Tool, apt-get.

Please be sure to back up your configuration files before starting this process as apt-get overwrites any modifications you have made to them.


  1. If you were previously using a version of Datastax Community, add the DataStax repository to the /etc/apt/sources.list using your username and password.
    $ deb stable main
    Get the username and password from your DataStax registration confirmation email. If you don’t have the email, register on the DataStax web site.
  2. Upgrade the node.
    $ sudo apt-get update
    $ sudo apt-get install dse-full
  3. If the prompt appears informing you of the disk space to be used, type Y to continue.
