emonBase and apt-get etc

What’s the advice re: regularly performing ‘apt-get upgrade’ etc. on an emonBase platform?

I’ve had a search of the forum and the general sense I’m getting is if it’s working, just leave it alone.

Hi Nick,

That’s usually good advice with many things :wink:

whenever possible do updates from the GUI as the update script does more than just upgrade the repositories (depending on age of system and current version).

Excerpted from: Updated OS on emonPi and now nothing

So much of what comes out are security patches, I generally keep things up to date.

I also find that if it is done regularly, you are unlikely to hit any major issues.
