You can find it out by running

sudo dpkg -s rabbitmq-server

With apt, you just install the upgrade. With the tarball version, if you
did not override RabbitMQ database location and such [1], you should be able
to just stop the service and start the new version.

In both cases, the database will be irreversibly upgraded, so back it up
just in case (requires the node to be stopped).

If you need to upgrade a cluster, see [2].
