The best approach to an upgrade of your version is rpm -Uvh
mysql-version-platform.rpm.  If it complains about dependency conflicts,
RESOLVE THEM BEFORE PROCEEDING.  This is the only correct approach.

Also, backing up your data files is useful, if you had the server
running in production-mode at all.
