    • Run sha256sum geth_linux
    • The result should match 8640c16780e6dbe2da74c2a215be91160491a30bcd495b0d0d5bbf551f6a22a8
  • Stop the old version of the Geth program.
  • Replace it with the new version.
  • Start the new version of the Geth program.
  • Verify that the new version is correct by checking the console output, such as instance=Geth/v1.0.8-26e9bfad/linux-amd64/go1.19.13.
  • Ensure that the node syncs up to the latest block successfully. For validators, confirm that the node can successfully produce blocks once elected.
