Updating Home Assistant inside Docker


uff, not sure I can hep more. Perhaps try Discord.


I really appreciate it anyhow, once I resolve this - I’ll update here, thanks a lot @juan11perez


welcome. sorry i couldnt help resolve.


From what I remember, ssh is very particular about the permissions of the key files and its directory.

Make sure that the directory that contains the key files is readable only by the user using them, and the private key is the same. Otherwise ssh refuses to work.


I just wanted to clarify that you are never meant to update anything inside a docker container. Docker exists so that developers (and others) can create a container that works anywhere its run, and if you change anything inside the container, that defeats the whole purpose. Those who run HA using Docker, will never update the HA instance in the container, but the entire image. This prevents anything breaking.
