How to update DietPi automatically

Post by juliuscaesar »

I wonder if i need to keep the system updated with apt-get upgrade && apt-get dist-upgrade in order to get the latest security updates and so forth. Or does the DietPi do that by it self? If not, is there a way to automate the process of keeping the system up to date ?

Thanks for a awesome distro!

Hi,

For apt, you may want to take a look at cron-apt for this:

For DietPi automatic updates, this is not a feature we are planning to implement, due to the possible risk involved in automated updating.
If you find our project or support useful, then we’d really appreciate it if you’d consider contributing to the project however you can.
Donating is the easiest – you can use PayPal or become a DietPi patron.
