Different ways of checking version info

I am trying to get Suricata version info.

The command suricata-update check-versions is suggested in official documentation but in my case it doesn’t work because I do not have pyyaml installed.

Is there another way to check current Suricata version?

Hi Jack!
Welcome to our forum. :slight_smile:
If the goal is to jut get the version info of the installed Suricata, type suricata -V, the results would tell you.
check-versions command is to check if the version you are using is really up to date.
Another way is to verify it yourself by checking the latest Suricata versions, on the website (Download | Suricata) or on our github (Releases · OISF/suricata · GitHub)
