Have to download a new image every time there's an update?

Post by jasjeev4 »

I just got a notice that there's a new image for DietPi. However, when I run dietpi-update I get the notice in the screenshot attached.
I'm curious to know if I'll have to download a new image each time there's an update to DietPi.

Apologies if this is a silly question as I'm pretty new to DietPi.

Hi Jasjeev4,

Not a silly question, completely understand your query.

Unfortunately, sometimes there are too many core changes to DietPi, and, they cant be updated as a online patch. Hence this will require a new image.
The old version will still function and you are not required to update unless you wish to.
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.
