[Answered] Updating software

Post by unixmit »

One thing I am not clear on is how to update applications installed using dietpi-software. Does this software get updated when I update dietpi or should I be updating them myself through the applications? Or both?

Thanks

Check: https://github.com/Fourdee/DietPi/issues/2246

Generally use APT upgrade and software internal updaters. If any DietPi related issue occurs (should not), we would fix fast.

Most software titles are updated as well on: dietpi- software reinstall <software_id>

Usable e.g. if no other update method exists. But always keep a dietpi-backup, just in case.
