Check compatibility with other OMK apps
Has a dependency changed
Test in a non production system
Have you got custom modifications or template changes
Have you got a test plan and steps to perform a rollback in your production environment
As always, we strongly recommend to keep a backup of the current installation. This is a recommended practice and it's an important step on any software installation or upgrade.
The installer saves a log of all actions taken, files copied etc. in the installation directory as
install.log, ie. normally it'll be in
/usr/local/omk/install.log. Subsequent upgrades or installations of other Opmantek products will add to that logfile, so you may very well want to remove or clear the install.log file before upgrading or adding extra software.

You also need to run the installer for each previously application that was installed (reinstall) in order to downgrade properly and have the initd and systemd services restored too.

A couple things to remember -
There is no need to request a license update, as the licenses are continuing to be valid with this upgrade.
