(resolved) dietpi-update 404

Hi there,

Since about a week it seems not possible anymore to run the dietpi update script on my rpi2.
I’m able to ping the host so it doesn’t seem like a local network issue.

Ive already replaced dietpi-update with a version from github but the error remains.

I hope someone is able to work with me to figure this.

Kind regards,


It appears at some point, your device wasnt shut-down correctly (eg: power cut, hard power cycle). Because of this, some of your settings have been corrupted.

Patch & Update:
We have released the update that will stop this from occurring. Unfortunately, if you have the 404 error currently, this will need to be patched manually. Doing so will resolve the 404 error, however, it will also reset DietPi settings to default.

I would highly recommend a fresh image install of DietPi, however, if this is not an option, please backup your personal data and run the code below.

cd /DietPi
rm dietpi.txt
rm config.txt
wget https://raw.githubusercontent.com/MichaIng/DietPi/master/config.txt
wget https://raw.githubusercontent.com/MichaIng/DietPi/master/dietpi.txt

dietpi-update can now be run.
