Main goals of updates/upgrades — bug fixes, new features, security vulnerabilities fixes, where ideal state is always be up to date. Updates/upgrades can be done to the latest minor version of the existing current major version or to the next major version. For instance, if you deployed your cluster when the latest version was 4.3.22 you can upgrade it today to the latest minor 4.3.40 version or gradually to the latest existing version, i.e OCP 4.6.7. …

Cloudlets not always has a connection to the central cloud so they should be able to live autonomously where connection to the center broken and be able to reconnect once connection restored. In this way containerized applications would be deployed from a central location to the edge locations and even to IOT equipment. In the past customers lost money by managing edge manually, it was error prone…
