How to upgrade MySQL in Linux such as Fedora with Yum which is faster and convenient

Using Fedora as example but similar for other Linux:

Install MySQL Yum Repository

Example for Fedora:

shell> sudo dnf -y install https://dev.mysql.com/get/mysql80-community-release-fc31-1.noarch.rpm

shell> sudo yum --disablerepo=\* --enablerepo='mysql*-community*' list available

Then choose the package you want to install/upgrade, such as:

shell> sudo yum -y install mysql-community-{client,server}

Finally we can check the version:

$ mysql --version
mysql Ver 8.0.19 for Linux on x86_64 (MySQL Community Server - GPL)

$ mysqldump --version
mysqldump Ver 8.0.19 for Linux on x86_64 (MySQL Community Server - GPL)
