Major package upgrades in this version
This release only updates Nextcloud and Nextcloud “apps”.
To be safe, first check the status of your Device:
sudo ubos-admin status
and make sure everything is in working order. Then create a backup of all your sites, with a command such as:
sudo ubos-admin backup --all --backuptodirectory ~
Then, update your device:
sudo ubos-admin update -v
This upgrade can take a long time (hours), because some cryptographic keys need to be updated, and the key server we depend on can be very slow. If you don’t like this, first update your keys:
- log on as root,
pacman-key --refresh-keys, and then
ubos-admin update --nokeyrefresh
This will take about the same amount of time, but your Sites
will continue to be working while
pacman-key is running. The actual
update then can be much faster.
- If after the upgrade,
sudo ubos-admin statusreports that a service called
firstname.lastname@example.org failed, simply restart it:
sudo systemctl start email@example.com(where
