3.10 Soft Release and Apt Repo

3.10 and 3.10.1 were announced as a soft release with the apt repositories not being updated yet. That was two weeks ago. Does anybody know if the apt repo has been updated yet or if we are still waiting? I didn't want to dive into it now right if it is going to be upgraded next week.

Re: 3.10 Soft Release and Apt Repo

3.10.1 should be going out to full release today.

 

I'll post an update when it happens.  Here's a rundown of the circumstances:

  1. UVC-NVR/airVision-C must upgrade to 3.9.12 through any means, then upgrade to 3.10.1 through the web UI. 3.9.12 has an update to the script that perform a one-time "migration" for lack of a better term.
  2. Ubuntu 14.04 will be stuck as far as apt and web UI upgrades go.  Any upgrading beyond 3.9.12 is completely unsupported for this OS.
  3. Windows should be no different than any other upgrade
  4. Ubuntu 16.04 should be no different than any other upgrade
  5. Ubuntu 18.04....there's a number of ways to attack this one, but it's likely safest to be running 3.9.12 on Ubuntu 16.04, upgrade to 3.10.1, then upgrade to Ubuntu 18.04.  Or, of course, do a fresh install on Ubuntu 18.04.

Re: 3.10 Soft Release and Apt Repo

AFAIK there will be an update posted when it goes full GA.  That said however, I'm no expert on updating via APT, but the 3.9.x to 3.10.x update has some special req that I'm unsure APT would deliver.  It needs to run through the GUI or with ubnt-updater.

 

Maybe @UBNT-Matt_B_ can confirm?

Re: 3.10 Soft Release and Apt Repo

Thanks Matt.  The OP failed to mention what platform it is but you also did not say what the effect would be on the NVR appliance if APT were used on it rather than the UI.  Are you saying (by not saying) that APT is not possible on the appliance?

I don't want to open up a semantic can of worms.  But, yes, that's what I'm saying.  If you update via apt on the appliance, the service won't start because it'll (by default) be missing OpenJDK 8 which is what the ubnt.updater command (a.k.a. upgrading through the web UI) will add to the upgrade process.

 

Bottom line: always read release notes Man Very Happy
