Upgrade Ravada

In order to upgrade Ravada, you have to do a few steps:

Steps for a clean update

Step 1

Download the deb package of the new version found at the UPC ETSETB repository.

Step 2

Install the deb package.

sudo dpkg -i <deb file>

On some upgrades may be required to install some dependencies. You will see because the packaging system will warn about it:

dpkg: dependency problems prevent configuration of ravada:
  ravada depends on libdatetime-perl; however:
  Package libdatetime-perl is not installed.

If so, install those dependencies automatically running:

sudo apt-get -f install

Step 3

Reconfigure systemd.

sudo systemctl daemon-reload

Step 4

Restart the services.

sudo systemctl restart rvd_back
sudo systemctl restart rvd_front

Step 5

Check the apache configuration

If you upgrade from older releases you may have to add some lines to the apache proxy configuration. Check the Apache proxy guide.
