update

The update command targets a release instead of a jail. Because every jail is based on a release, when the release is updated all the jails are automatically updated as well.

If no updates are available, a message will be shown:

ishmael ~ # bastille update 11.2-RELEASE
Looking up update.FreeBSD.org mirrors... 2 mirrors found.
Fetching metadata signature for 11.2-RELEASE from update4.freebsd.org... done.
Fetching metadata index... done.
Inspecting system... done.
Preparing to download files... done.

No updates needed to update system to 11.2-RELEASE-p4.
No updates are available to install.

The older the release, however, the more updates will be available:

ishmael ~ # bastille update 10.4-RELEASE
Looking up update.FreeBSD.org mirrors... 2 mirrors found.

The following files will be added as part of updating to 10.4-RELEASE-p13:

To be safe, you may want to restart any jails that have been updated live.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
