Update Hestia v1.6.8


Hestia Control Panel: v1.6.8
Operating System: Ubuntu 20.04 (x86_64)

I have a question about updating Hestia from v1.6.8 to the latest version (v1.6.14) without using the command “apt update && apt upgrade”. I’m concerned that upgrading may have an impact on other packages.

Due to a bug introduced in 1.6.8 auto updates and updates via v-update-sys-hestia are broken! Source

I’ve reviewed the source code for the auto-update cron job and noticed that it only updates three packages: hestia hestia-nginx hestia-php. Is there a method to update only those packages and achieve the same result as the script?


Thanks! :blush:

apt update && apt upgrade

Thank you, @eris! I mentioned in the post that I’m looking for an alternative to the command “apt update && apt upgrade” and my concern is updating only Hestia packages without upgrading other packages. Can you help me with that?

v-update-sys-hestia-git hestiacp release will also work

And then v-update-sys-hestia

I think I can upgrade only Hestia by using the following commands (without the --dry-run option):


sudo apt update


165 packages can be upgraded. Run 'apt list --upgradable' to see them.


sudo apt --only-upgrade --dry-run install hestia hestia-nginx hestia-php
