    Default Which Upgrade will be applied?

    When Untangle has an Upgrade available, there would be an administrative alert that says,

    "Upgrades are available and ready to be installed."

    When going to Config-Upgrade, a message appears that says,

    "Upgrades are Available"

    The problem is, I can't determine which version Untangle will be upgraded to. Even with the help of Release Notes, I don't know if Untangle is going to minor upgrade, the next release, or skip to the latest release. For example, I might have Untangle 9, but is the "Upgrade available" going to install version 10, 11 or 12?

    Two days ago, I upgraded a site from 11.2 to 11.2.1. I was unsure if I was going to receive 12. Untangle now says,

    "No Upgrades available"

    Is there information about which version Untangle will upgrade to within the Admin Interface?

    No.

    I agree it would be nice to have a link to show in detail about the updates it is referring too. I don't think there is a device that doesn't let it users know this information before updating.

    You can get the version, but you have to use the command line apt tools, and not screw up. Which is why I'm not putting the syntax here.

    fasttech - Thanks for the information. I was searching throughout the forums and documentation but couldn't find an answer.

    jvillareal78 - Thanks for the response and I agree. I tried looking through the feedback for a related suggestion but couldn't find one. I'll leave feedback.

    sky-knight - My question was focused on if the NGFW would informs us of which upgrade will be applied once one its available. I was unsure of which version would be applied, how to determine this, and considered that I may receive the latest release. If there's a way to use the terminal with apt tools to get the latest release, that sounds very interesting. I didn't see (can't find) this information within the forums though. I like to test and learn how things work before performing the same steps on my production environment. Syntax or not, at least now I know that for the moment, version 12 is not available through the regular upgrade process.

    apt-get update && apt-get -s upgrade

    The first bit tells apt to refresh the packages list, the second lists new packages without installing them. Several packages will have Untangle's name on it, and will reveal the version you have available.

    Do not use apt-get upgrade, forget that -s and you'll start a command line upgrade, which is a great way to brick your server. That's why I didn't want to put the details here.

    P.S. dpkg -l | grep Untangle will spit out the installed Untangle stuff, with the version numbers. Oh, and if you aren't aware those commands are case sensitive.

    Thanks for the info! I gave it a shot but it didn't work. Running apt-get update && apt-get - s upgrade gave me:

    Is "stable-120 Release" supposed to be version 12?

    Yes, "stable-120 release" is very likely 12.0

    However, like my unit you have no packages being listed, so your box is looking for a 12.0 upgrade, but doesn't have it available. Hayate-1 is Untangle 11.2.1.

    Thanks sky-knight! I was thinking exactly the same thing but wanted to be sure. I'll manually upgrade mine for now and wait for the upgrade to be available for my production environment.
