WARNING: This documentation covers Parallels H-Sphere versions up to 3.1. For the latest up-to-date Parallels H-Sphere documentation, please proceed to the

SWUP is a free package management utility front-end to easily
perform package installation, upgrading and removal. Dependencies are
automatically handled, so if you try to install a package that needs
others to be installed, it will download all needed packages and install them.
Prior to updating your OS packages with SWUP, make sure you
exclude specific H-Sphere-related services
from the SWUP configuration.
To exclude these packages, modify the corresponding part of your
/etc/swup/swup.conf file, similar to this:
# ========== Regexps ==========
# Regexps to control which packages should be included in an upgrade
# procedure. Please note that exclude_pkg_regexp overrides
include_pkg_regexp = ".*"
