upgrade system to the next release or a
sysupgrade is a utility to upgrade
OpenBSD to the next release or a new snapshot if
sysupgrade downloads the necessary files
to /home/_sysupgrade, verifies them with
signify(1), and copies bsd.rd to
sysupgrade by default then reboots the
system. The bootloader will automatically choose
/bsd.upgrade, triggering a one-shot upgrade using
the files in /home/_sysupgrade.
The options are as follows:
- Force an already applied upgrade. The default is to upgrade to latest snapshot only if available. This option has no effect on releases.
- Keep the files in /home/_sysupgrade. By default they will be deleted after the upgrade.
- Fetch and verify the files and create /bsd.upgrade but do not reboot.
- Upgrade to the next release. This is the default if the system is currently running a release.
- Upgrade to a snapshot. This is the default if the system is currently running a snapshot.
See upgrade.site(5) for how to customize the upgrade process.
- Response file for the ramdisk kernel.
- The ramdisk kernel to trigger an unattended upgrade.
- OpenBSD mirror top-level URL for fetching an upgrade.
- Directory the upgrade is downloaded to.
