We noticed that wget on Amazon Linux 2 is v1.14, but on the older version of Amazon Linux, it was v1.18.

Any idea why this would be? I'm fairly certain we installed from yum in both cases.

Is there a way to get yum to install a more modern wget under Amazon Linux 2?

"repoquery -i wget" on Amazon Linux 1:
