Update from 6.4 to 6.6: 6.4 to 6.5 failed, 6.5 to 6.6 OK..??


First of all, thanks for DietPi. I’ve been using it since version 110 if I recall correctly and it’s awesome! Thanks for all your hard efforts.

Today I tried to update my DietPi from version 6.4 to 6.6. Usually I make a backup before doing so, but today I was in a hurry and of course Murphy’s law struck me: The update from version 6.4 to 6.5 went wrong. It was unable to download some depencies/apt files from raspberrypi.org. DietPi said it would terminate the program, but instead it automatically continued with updating to 6.6. This seemed to have gone fine; everything is working as it should as far as I can see, but I am a little concerned that I might end up with a corrupt installation.

Is there any way to verify, or repair, the current installation? I am using an old Raspberry Pi Model B with 256MB RAM.

Many thanks!


There was an external bug with a Raspbian package, which broke sources.list.

We did patch for this, however, just to make sure we should rerun 6.4 > 6.6 patch again:

echo -e "6\n4\n" > /DietPi/dietpi/.version

Please check for any errors and screengrab/paste them here if they occur.

Many thanks for your reply!

This time the update went well from 6.4 → 6.5 → 6.6 without any errors. Thank you very much!!
