Updating MM (and/or disabling the update available message)



  • I now have a message saying there’s a new version of MM available on my MM setup. Can I inhibit the display of this message? If so, how?

    I thought perhaps I could update MM by running apt upgrade, but that doesn’t work. So is there some info on how to upgrade the system? Some step by step instructions?

    cd ~/MagicMirror
    git pull
    npm install
    

    Alternatively you can remove this part from your config.js, but then you won’t get any notification about pending updates for MagicMirror or any of the modules

    {
    	module: "updatenotification",
    	position: "top_bar"
    },
    


  • Awesome - thanks!

    Let me ask you, is it worthwhile to create a cron script entry that will check for updates automatically, or is there a chance it can break something and may need to be manually handled?

    As with every update, even from big companies like Microsoft, there is always a risk of breaking something
