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

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.
