Just wondering how often others run apt-get upgrade on their production RPi based EmonCMS machines.
Not often enough!
I did do it the other day and it was a large update which took a while.
If you do, check all the services have come back properly.
dist-upgrade is more dangerous as it pulls in more changes and that has upset things in the past.
Hello @borpin, Is an apt-get upgrade performed automatically when the EmonPi software is updated? or would I have to do that separately?
Hope all is well,
apt-get update is done but not the upgrade.
Yes, I made the mistake of doing the dist-upgrade once before, so I was concerned about doing just the upgrade. I did make a “disk” image before running just the upgrade.
If it’s running fine and not internet exposed. Not.
When there are improvements, specific updates and ‘time’ available. I run some updates/upgrades/…
Don’t think an update is just click and go… There will be a time it goes wrong en then it starts… (time…)
Exactly. Imagine the upkeep involved if apt upgrade was done everytime the update button’s pressed in emoncms.
I wonder if there’s a subscription or news service for vulnerabilities worthy of upgrading for.
Or else we’re relying on posts to the forum about user’s Pis getting hacked
