apt-get upgrade

Post by Effofex » 02 Feb 2009, 18:33


Should I be able to use:

Code: Select all

apt-get upgrade
I tried it the other day and it seemed to mess my system up; I had to re-install the system from a USB stick.

Am I not meant to run 'apt-get upgrade' on Bubba?

You should be able to use apt-get upgrade and apt-get update without any problems I guess.

You have to be root.

Code: Select all

# su

Yes, that works as # su

BUT, if you go back and then us the Update function from the Settings -> Update, you get this feedback
Updating available sources...
The server encountered an internal error or misconfiguration and was unable to complete your request.

Please contact the server administrator, webmaster@localhost and inform them of the time the error occurred, and anything you might have done that may have caused the error.

This message will be displayed when you update from a 1.0.8 system (fresh install).

This is the upgrade function that was not handling the downloads pretty well.
This is fixed in the updates availble.

See the announcments for the first upgrade release:

Thanks for the replies.

I updated my system the other day using (as root):

Code: Select all

apt-get update
apt-get dist-upgrade
Everything still seems to be working.

Presumably this is the command-line way of keeping your Bubba system up-to-date? I'm assuming that this is the route for people who wish to modify /etc/apt/sources.list and have the changes preserved through Bubba system updates.
