Update without release notes?


my vero2 just greeted me with an Update-Message. I’ve seen no release notes on osmc.tv, nor in the forum… what’s new? Is the database affected?


Hi Markus

All updates that are publicly released are mentioned on our blog.

We have made a small improvements to network-osmc, but your device shouldn’t be receiving this update yet unless you’re on a staging repository.

Database versions are not affected.



here some more information from my side:
osmc@vero:~$ LC_ALL=C apt-get -s upgrade
NOTE: This is only a simulation!
apt-get needs root privileges for real execution.
Keep also in mind that locking is deactivated,
so don’t depend on the relevance to the real current situation!

Calculating upgrade… The following packages were automatically installed and are no longer required:
fontconfig-config fonts-dejavu-core libass5 libenca0 libfontconfig1 libgraphite2-3 libharfbuzz0b libjasper1 vero2-image-3.10.104-10-osmc
Use ‘apt-get autoremove’ to remove them.
The following packages will be upgraded:

Conf armv7-network-osmc (1.6.6 OSMC:apt.osmc.tv [armhf])

I don’t have any special repositories:

osmc@vero:/etc/apt$ cat sources.list
deb Index of /debian jessie main contrib non-free

deb Index of /debian jessie-updates main contrib non-free

deb http://security.debian.org/ jessie/updates main contrib non-free

deb http://apt.osmc.tv jessie main

So most of it is security (good), but the new network-stuff is there, too…

If you manually check for updates, you will get updates before they are necessarily written on the blog.

Nothing to worry about :slight_smile:

Always use dist-upgrade!

He only ran a simulation, so it’s OK.
