How can hassbian-config be updated?


I have a hassbian installation which is a couple of months old.
While browsing for the commands to update my home assistant version I found a not on the “updating hassbian” page that there is now a new way to update home assistant. It says that:

you can also use hassbian-config to automate the process by running sudo hassbian-config upgrade home-assistant

However, my hassbian-config command does not know the upgrade command.

How can I upgrade “hassbian-config” itself?

I was able to help myself.

Apt said that the latest version was already installed (0.3).

However, github says there is v0.6 (Releases · home-assistant/hassbian-scripts · GitHub) that includes the HA update stuff.

So, what I did to update hassbian-config was

sudo dpkg -i hassbian-scripts_0.6.deb
sudo apt-get -f install

Afterwards I let hassbian-config upgrade home assistant from 0.54 to 0.56 and it worked.


:+1::+1::+1: Thanks for this, been trying to figure this out for a while.

How do you check what version scripts is currently installed?

I just did

sudo apt-get install hassbian-scripts

in the hope that it would do something useful.
And it did - at least it printed the currently installed package :slight_smile:

:+1: Okay,
