upgrade repository to tar install

Howdy folks,
My shop is looking at moving and upgrading our MySQL databases(v5.6.21) from a Linux x86-64bit Red Hat repository installation to a TAR install(v5.6.30) on the same server.
Our ideal scenario would be that we could install the TAR version, shut down our databases and start them up in upgrade mode pointed at the TAR install.
At worst case we would try and restore the databases to the TAR install.

This almost makes it sound like that our ideal isn't achievable and we'll have to remove our old installation AND databases:
"If you have previously installed MySQL using your operating system native package management system, such as yum or apt-get, you may experience problems
installing using a native binary. Make sure your previous MySQL installation has been removed entirely (using your package management system), and that any additional files,
such as old versions of your data files, have also been removed."

Does anyone have any idea if our upgrade is feasible?
