I usually manage an OSMC instance running in my parents house via SSH and iOS Kodi remote control (via a VPN).
The only issue to solve so far is how to upgrade a remote OSMC instance via SSH. I do “apt-get update; apt-get dist-upgrade” but the process hangs around 87%. My parents report a TV black image and OSMC not visible neither responding to the remote.
Their only choice then is to power cycle the Raspberry PI. After that, everything works and the upgrade seems to have finished correctly.
We had go thru this frequently, same process, same hang, same power cycle. I am scared of breaking my parent’s OSMC eventually and I wonder what would be the right process to follow.
PS: Using the “my OSMC” addon is what I do with my OSMC install, but my parents are old and I rather prefer to spare them the details. Moreover, they live 600km away.
