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.
