MagicMirror² v2.14.0 is available! For more information about this release, check out this topic.

So ... to update MagicMirror I would ... ??

  • cd into the magicmirror folder and run:

    sudo apt-get update


    sudo apt-get upgrade

    do I then have to run npm install???

    Thanks for the help


  • @chef

    If you want to update your MagicMirror² to the latest version, use your terminal to go to your Magic Mirror folder and type the following command:
    git pull && npm install
    If you changed nothing more than the config or the modules, this should work without any problems. Type git status to see your changes, if there are any, you can reset them with git reset --hard. After that, git pull should be possible.

  • I’ve just applied the latest update and get a blank, black screen.

    If I kill electron, I get back to the Pi desktop, until electron auto restarts.

    Any advice on how to get MM back again, please?


  • Module Developer

    Also my MagicMirror is a blank screen. Will not start again

  • many thanks 😉

  • Same issue, i´ve updated and got a black screen.

  • PIR disabled in config (as a precaution, elimination)
    Pi shutdown, powered off, and restarted.
    MM Still blank on Pi.
    MM OK on a LAN PC, via :8080

  • Yep. I see I’m not the only one with a blank screen…
    I did the git pull && npm install. It went through with only two warnings. Then after pm2 restart I got the blank screen. I see that there is an npm-debug.log that contains some errors:

    Any help would be appreciated.

  • Module Developer

    I returned from a copied img from my sd card to an older version and only did

    git pull

    didn’t do the

    npm install

    at least now it works again

  • strange I’m not seeing a black screen.

    Perhaps an issue with the auto start script? But I’m unsure.

    Electron was updated in this release as well.
