    Hi Everyone,

    I have also same problem. I am using the centos-release-7-4.1708.el7.centos.x86_64. I should use this only as a project need, and mistakenly i have done yum update. Then it updated to 7.6, now how I can downgrade to 7.4 ? i have tried above steps but it’s not working for me.

    can anyone help..

    Usually old kernel not deleted, so you can just boot it.
    Changing package with release name will not revert userspace.

    This is not recomended by CentOS. You can find older packages on mirrors?
