How can I upgrade my Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.5 patches without subscription?

Error message :

This system is not registered to Red Hat Subscription Management. You can use subscription-manager to register.


You can't.

If all of your subscriptions expire and you have no other active subscriptions in your organization, you retain the right to use the software under the applicable license terms. However, your entire environment will no longer receive any of the subscription benefits, including:

  • The latest certified software versions.
  • Security errata and bug fixes ...


  • Hi dsstorefile, thanks for your information. I just found out there is a solution for this error and some of the users were tested good. saifulaziz.com/2014/02/26/… – lswong Feb 27 '18 at 9:12
  • @lswong the linked “solution” won’t allow you to upgrade, and you won’t get any security fixes and such like. – Stephen Kitt Feb 27 '18 at 9:42
