[Solved] Odd update behaivor - Version 6.20.6

Post by zeroth »

I used dietpi-update and updated however after reboot I am still at the older version. I can't update from 6.19.7 to 6.20.6. Also I don't even see any information on that particular release in the forums. Is this something bad? Any advice would be helpful.

I can get the screen that says Update applied: Current version v6.20.6 and it asked me to reboot. After reboot, I'm still notified there is an update.

Update: Well, after three reboots and two additional attempts to update it seems to have taken. I show I'm on 6.20.6. No idea what was going on but if anyone wants logs I'll be happy to provide that. Just let me know.

@roman1528
The issue should be resolved with v6.21.

If you did already get stuck with the update, please do the following:
Cancel any dietpi-software prompt, if it opens automatically on login, then:

Code: Select all

> /DietPi/dietpi/.update_stage
echo 1 /DietPi/dietpi/.install_stage
dietpi-update 1
About /etc/rc.local:
- Note that this is a relict from old times that is on fresh Debian installs not enabled by default anymore.
- DietPi just follows the Debian defaults here.
- You should instead use a systemd unit to run certain scripts on startup. Or use a DietPi implementation by placing your script into: /var/lib/dietpi/postboot.d/
- If you really require or want to use rc.local, enable the backwards compatibility service: systemctl enable rc-local

Thank you.
Update to 6.21.1 solved the rc.local problem...
but now, on raspberry, wifi is not working anymore.

More to that in a new thread...
