Keeping the Mini Router Operating System up to date

Hello,

I have purchased one of Seeeds Mini Routers and as it took some time to get to me, one of the first things I wanted to do was check for any updates to the operating software. But I don’t seem to be able to do that via the normal command line or terminal.

Contacted support, they advised I needed to reimage the SD Card with latest image each time!

Is this correct?

Any guidance greatly appreciated.

Hello @lloydc,

If you want to update the available packages list, you can type: opkg update
Next, if you want to upgrade the packages, you can type: opkg upgrade

But if you want the latest OpenWrt System, you can follow the wiki below to flash the latest image:

Can I know which version of the Compute Module you have? eMMC or non-eMMC version?

Best Regards,
