UNSOLVED Should I update?
Hi MM builders.
A long time ago (december 2017) I built my MM and it had been running without major issues since.
It must be far behind with updates (master branch and modules).
Should I update (and if so, how?)
Of just leave it running as it does now?
@peter lots of changes since then
I would use my upgrade script
1st time is test and tell you about any potential issues i u need to fix (fix and run again til u are comfortable)
then u can do with apply to actually upgrade?
u can also do my backup script
(have to clone this one)
saves config.js and github links to all the installed modules…
I noticed your script, but was wondering if it would work because I am so much behind.
I think I still run MM 1.x
And I love my MM.
@peter make a backup of the MM folder before starting
the script will work, or I will fix it…
I have a similar problem.
My memory card is defective and I had to revert to an older backup.
Unfortunately, I have been a little lax with the backup, as I always have to get the mirror off the wall a bit awkwardly to back up the SD card.
I am with the mirror still on Jessie.
When I stop the MagicMirror with “pm2 stop mm” and also stop node with killall node, I get a message from your scipt (test mode) that node and npm need to be updated.
How do I get them to the latest version?
I am rather beginner in Linux - so have understanding for simple queries.
Can you help me?
@mymirror jessie is very old
4 releases back now. almost nothing will support running there now
I would also suggest some of the mechanisms to backup over the local network
yes i know … very old.
in the meantime I got the system on “Stretch” and wanted to take the next step to “Buster”.
But I get the following error (on german):
PGP error: http://ftp.de.debian.org/debian buster InRelease: The following signatures could not be verified because their public key is not available …
How can I adjust/correct this?
Thanks a lot
@mymirror i do not know… buster is also not current
@sdetweil finally I tried the update: MM will not start anymore.
I am on stretch by the way.
