Updating Asterisk version

Another simple one!

Recently Asterisk 13.5.0 was released, and I am on 13.4.0. The server hasn’t gone into major production, so I thought I would perform the Asterisk update prior to production.

I did a yum update asterisk13* - saw the 13.5.0 packages that it was going to download, let it download and install them as normal.

Then I did an amportal a reload and an asterisk -rx “core reload”. In FPBX Asterisk Info page it still shows as 13.4.0, but with the asterisk console the MOTD copyright notice says;
Asterisk 13.5.0, Copyright © 1999 - 2014, Digium, Inc. and others.
but underneath that it still says;
Connected to Asterisk 13.4.0 currently running on localhost (pid = 2017)

Have I missed a step here? Do I need to completely restart the Asterisk process (this is something I’m not sure about, surely that isn’t as easy as service asterisk restart?)?

Thanks in advance,

You need to run amportal restart from the linux CLI
