How to update
#1
Hey guys,

how do I update the Ubuntu Touch image? Do I have to reflash after each new build or can I do it from the settings menu?

Best,
Thomas

It's been awhile since I used the UBPorts image but I'm sure there is an update feature in the settings menu. You could also open a terminal and type in:

sudo apt update -y && sudo apt upgrade

I prefer that because I can see what's being updated/upgraded.

Thank you, Lon! I am actually a bit surprised, because I know from Ubuntu Touch that I have to remount my root directory before doing that. And to my knowledge, I could not update from the GUI any more if I update this way from the termina.

Did I get something wrong here?

I don't think updates work in the gui on pinephone yet. I've been updating through the terminal without any issues. You don't have to mount anything.
