Hi.
I have a very low connection speed over Wi-Fi and I must wait very long time(few hours) to download all system updates after the first boot. How to disable this system updates? Or is here any way how to skip updates?
Thanks
Roman

Hi,

on Initial first boot, the system will always perform an apt package updated as well as a DietPi script update.

So in my case I have to disconnect network on the first boot?

in this case, you will get an error message and first installation will fail due to missing network connection. Atm it is not intended to perform an offline installation (first boot).
