Automatic Updating

Post by Frk »

Hi there!

I know we can update our DietPi to a new release/version using 'dietpi -update', but would it be also possible to schedule this to be done automatically? Or can I already do this by scheduling it as a cronjob?

Many thanks

Hi,

Automatic updates are not possible at the moment, and must be run by an end user. This is because in our patch system, we may need to ask the user a question with a yes/no answer.
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.
