New Raspberry Pi OS update with Octoprint?

What is the problem?

I received an email that there is a new update to Pi OS [The latest update to Raspberry Pi OS - Raspberry Pi].
Will I fry my Octoprint install if I try to update to the new Pi OS?

What did you already try to solve it?
Nothing yet.

Have you tried running in safe mode?
No.

Did running in safe mode solve the problem?
No

There's not any reason to do anything special beyond a usual sudo apt update and sudo apt upgrade on your OctoPi image. The OctoPi image is still based on Buster, rather than Bullseye - you won't get the updates that are in that article on the OctoPi instance. They don't look particularly relevant, as many are only for GUI use which OctoPi does not have.

If you want to use Bullseye (and so you can have the updates mentioned), you will have to use an OctoPi 1.0.0 release candidate, or nightly build.

Thanks for the information! I'm new to the Octoprint world. Cheers!

I tend to fall in the "if it ain't broke, don't fix it" camp when it comes to updating. As long as it's working fine and there's no new features I absolutely need or critical security issues to address, I just leave it be :slight_smile:
