I have a Hassen Hansson IT VM running on a QNAP successfully for a few years. I’ve been really conservative with upgrades, and I’m now on 23.0.12 and would like to upgrade to the latest 25.x.x release (NOT 26, it’s too new for me). Is this possible? The cmdline script /var/scripts/update.sh seems to only want to go to 26.
How should I upgrade to 25 with this VM? I know the other system components (PHP, the deb packages, etc) are up to date because I just ran the minor version upgrade.
It does make things clear, thanks. But still leaves me in a situation where it’s REALLY easy to get behind and update.sh won’t help. It just happened again. But I found a workaround!
I was on a not current 25. update.sh brought me to 25.10. Running it again, I was at 25.10 and 27.x is out and update.sh quits. What I want update.sh to do in this case is upgrade to the latest 26 version. But it won’t.
Looking at the code in github, I discovered I could do touch /tmp/nextmajor.version and that would cause update.sh to attempt and upgrade of my current version + 1. So I did that and it seems to have succeeded!
I’ll go ahead and try upgrading to 27 if the Nextcloud admin interface tells me all my apps are compatible.
