Interactive patches (OS)

  • Dark

Snapt Aria Framework GUI

On Snapt Aria image instances you are able to patch the OS to keep it up to date. This utilizes the zypper binary for the older OpenSuse Snapt Aria Images and apt-get for the newer Snapt Aria Ubuntu Images.

OS patches can be installed from the Snapt GUI on the Setup -> Update Manager page, System Patches tab.


Although not recommended as a first option, OS patches can also be applied via the CLI by running the following commands.

Certain patches will be marked as interactive which means that they require your input or permission to reboot, etc.


sudo zypper patch

Make sure to never run an update though, try only perform patches!


apt-get update && apt-get upgrade

After a large number of patches have been applied we recommend that you perform a restart of the system.
