Upgrade PowerKVM to latest release

As of today user might be running powerkvm- on Power8 server.  User might want to update powerkvm to  latest releases as PowerKVM 2.1.1 out.

1) Make sure to switch off guests

Either from a Management layer ( kimchi/CMO/Openstack..etc) or just use virsh destroy

2) Copy latest powerkvm iso (2.1.1) or latest to powerkvm machine.

3) Run Below

ibm-update-system –upgrade –iso-path=

4) Update all packages and reboot.

Upgrading virtual machines is as same as any other Linux Distribution upgrade ( yum or zypper )
