# cat /etc/oracle-release

Oracle Linux Server release 7.6

# gcc --version

gcc (GCC) 4.8.5 20150623 (Red Hat 4.8.5-39.0.3)

# yum install gcc

Loaded plugins: langpacks, ulninfo

Package gcc-4.8.5-39.0.3.el7.x86_64 already installed and latest version

This is a very old version. How to get a version >= 8 installed? As far as I understand I would have to install software collection devtoolset-8, not clear how to get it done.
