Made a mirror backup to Juno.

Made a backup AMI:
    Scanalyst Backup 2023-06-14 ami-0ac5097390833bd56
        /           snap-06510cb44818ae525
        /server     snap-0adfafe587d78673d

The system had been up for 56 days.

Installed 79 update packages, 43 for security including a new kernel.
    yum update

Stopped Discourse.
    cd ~/discourse/image
    ./launcher stop app


The system came up promptly after the reboot.  We are now running on
kernel 4.14.314-238.539.amzn2.x86_64.

On the Discourse Upgrade manager page:

I upgraded:
    docker_manager      (This upgrade must be run first:
                        the other upgrade buttons are
                        disabled until it has been updated.)

With docker_manager updated, I now proceeded to update:

The Admin page now reports we're running on 3.1.0.beta5.

Verified that spoilers and MathJax are working after being updated.

Verified that Shalmaneser (discourse-chatbot) is working after being
updated.  I asked Shalmaneser via chat:
    Write a humorous limerick about a programmer trying to find the
    last bug before shipping an update to a program.
and s/he/it replied:
    A programmer was feeling the strain,
    As he worked to fix his program again.
    The deadline was nearing,
    And bugs kept appearing,
    But he found the last one – with champagne!
