Upgrade of ACS 5.4 to 5.5

Need a sanity check on our proposed upgrade of our ACS. There is a preupgrade entitled  "Pointed-PreUpgrade-CSCum04132-5-4-0-46-0a.tar.gpg "

which I'm not sure I need if I am running version 5.4.0.46.2.

Here is the output from our CLI. Do I need the patch or can I install 5.5?

Thanks,

Paul

Hello Paul,

Yes you can install ACS 5.5. when you upgrade from ACS 5.4 to ACS 5.5, it is mandatory to install the pointed patch before you start upgrading from ACS 5.4 version. The name of the patch file is Pointed-PreUpgrade-CSCum04132-5-4-0-46-0a.tar.gpg. You can install this pointed patch directly on FCS candidate build or on top of any cumulative patch version.

For complete upgrade process, please go through the following link:
