New upgrade message
« on: September 25, 2021, 03:13:32 PM »
I keep getting a message saying there is an upgrade available when I log into the web interface but when I ssh into my pi and run the commands I get the following message:

rbfeeder is already the newest version (0.2.21-20191004004313)

I've restarted my pi and tried running these commands again.

What can I do next to resolve this?

Thanks in advance.

What Linux version are you using, its possible you are on an old version and are needing to upgrade that first

I've been trying to answer this question but have been running into problems.

Running uname -a shows this result:

Linux PiAware24 4.19.66-v7+ #1253 SMP

I have Raspbian Stretch 9.13 as the primary OS.

Hope this helps.

Did you use the following commands for the update

Sudo apt-get update
Sudo apt-get install rbfeeder
Sudo systemctl restart rbfeeder

Also note that the installer will likely ask if you want to replace the rbfeeder ini. file, you should not replace it keep the original ini. file by typing N when the question is asked

I also note you are using Piaware so have a look at reply 77 of this thread https://forum.radarbox24.com/index.php?topic=10201.75

If all else fails I suggest you contact [email protected] for advice

I had a similar problem recently. When analyzing I found out that I obviously had installed rbfeeder while still running stretch and then later updated my raspi to buster and forgot to adjust repositories. So in /etc/apt/sources.list.d/rb24.list it still said stretch and this repository seemed not to be updated. After pointing this to buster and updating it found the new version.

Yes Glen, Stretch is an older version so an upgrade to Buster should be done and the update the feeders

Upgrading an existing old OS to latest by command line (sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade && sudo apt-get dist-upgrade) does the job, but is never trouble-free, both initially and later during use.

The cleanest solution to upgrade to the latest OS is to re-image microSD card with latest OS, and then install the feeders. This way one gets everything latest.

In order not to destroy your existing installation by re-imaging, I strongly recommend to preserve your existing microSD card as is, and do the re-imaging on a SPARE microSD Card. This way if you get stuck with reimaging, you can always slip-out the spare microSD card from RPi, slip in old one, and power up, and your system is back to normal.

Please see this guide:

Re-imaging Made Easy

Maybe some prominent info in the forum, that versions older then buster aren't updated anymore, would be helpful.
