Updating MediaVault Software
The Media Vault software can be updated in the Software Updates screen, which can be accessed in the left panel menu in the Admin Web Interface.
You will need to ensure the following in order to update the software:
Connect the Media Vault to the internet (for example your office network router) and configure your network settings in the Networking screen in the Admin Web Interface.
Click on Software Updates in the Admin Web Interface left-hand menu and ensure Repository is set to mediavault-updates and Branch is set to mediavaultos/standard.
The current installed version will be marked as Running.
Click Check for Updates
The latest version of software will be listed at the top. If it is a newer version than is currently running, it will be marked as Available with an option to Rebase and Reboot.
4. On clicking Rebase and Reboot, the version will change from Available to Updating while the Media Vault downloads the new software version.
When the download has completed the software will be automatically installed and the system will reboot, at which point the Admin Web Interface will disconnect. When the Media Vault reboots, the new software version will be running. Depending on the download speed available this process may take up to 1 hour.
We recommend to use the latest available version of Media Vault software, but if you require an earlier version, you will see them lower down in the list. To install an earlier version, scroll down to it and click Rebase and Reboot next to the required version.
Modifying MediaVault Software Repository to allow Updates from build 2.3 (and earlier)
The repository (storage location) for MediaVault Software Updates was changed when software version 2.4 was released. MediaVault systems running version 2.4 and above will automatically use the correct settings. For any MediaVault systems running version 2.3 or earlier, the settings will need to be updated manually in order to use the new repository and download software updates.
If there is an error when attempting to run a software update then click the name of the repository ‘mediavault-updates’:
Click on the Edit (pencil) icon, and if the URL is shown as ‘http://mediavault.ndx.at:8000’ then click the Delete option to remove the current settings:
Then click Add New Repository. For the new repository enter the name ‘mediavault-updates’ and the URL ‘http://mediavault-updates.ndx.at’ and select the checkbox for ‘Use trusted GPG key’, and click Add.
Click on the new repository name in the pop up, and click ‘Change Repository’. These settings will now be used by default, and the correct location will be used when ‘Check for Updates’ is selected.
