Some trouble with upgrade


#1

my debian show 2.0.2.15-1 when i launch dpkg from console
but using web GUI i’ve upgraded duplicati to 2.0.3.5
I’ve noticed some minor error in web interface, compared to a clean 2.0.3.5 installation
is it better that i reinstall 2.0.3.5 from console?
thanks

I’m sure @kenkendk will correct me if I’m wrong, but I believe Duplicati does in-GUI updates but “installing” the newer version into an updates folder that’s not part of the initial install folder. When the initial install folder code is run it first checks if there’s a newer version in the updates folder and passes control to that version instead.

That being said, I too have noticed that certain command line calls (such as to Duplicati.CommandLine.exe or duplicati-cli) seem to return the version number of the installed code, not the updated one.

~~ On Windows ~~

  • C:\Program Files\Duplicati 2\ (default original code location)
  • C:\ProgramData\Duplicati\updates\ (updated code location)

~~ On Linux ~~

  • /app/duplicati (default original code location, in Docker container)
  • /config/.config/Duplicati/updates/ (updated code location, in Docker container)
  • ~/.config/Duplicati/updates/ (updated code location, user based)
  • /root/.config/Duplicati/updates/ (updated code location, root / daemon based)
