opkg-upgrade

List and install OpenWRT / LEDE opkg upgradable packages.

Little ash app for easier opkg package upgrades.

You should check for config conflicts after upgrades!
Make sure you have enough space on root before installing stuff!
This script is small enough but SSL support for curl/wget is not!
You also need free space for downloading and installing the packages!

If you use OpenWRT trunk (dev snapshots), you should probably NOT upgrade
Upgrading development versions can soft-brick your device.
You should try to backup your config and do a full install of a later snapshot if you are running dev/trunk.
Main releases are fine (just trunk/snapshots are affected by this).
It is probably the opposite for releases (recommended to upgrade), since you will get security patches if you upgrade those.

Help example:

# ./opkg-upgrade.sh -h

Simple OPKG Updater v0.2.0

Usage: opkg-upgrade.sh [options]

Options:
  -V, --version         Show program name and version and exits
  -h, --help            Show this help screen and exits
  -i, --install [dir]   Install opkg-upgrade to [dir] or /usr/sbin
                        Leave [dir] empty for default (/usr/sbin)
  -u, --upgrade-check   Returns SUCCESS if there are updates available
                        Quiet execution, returns 0 or 1
  -l, --list-upgrades   Prints the list of available updates and exits
  -e, --email-list      Prints the list of updates in html email format
                        Includes subject, mime type and html formated data
  -s, --ssmtp <email>   Use the system's ssmtp to send update reports
                        You need to install and configure ssmtp beforehand
  -a, --always-send     Send e-mail even if there are no updates
                        By default e-mails are only sent when updates are available
  -t, --text-only       Send e-mail in plain text format.
                        By default, e-mails are sent in html format.
  -n, --no-opkg-update  Skip opkg update at the beginning,
                        may not find packages if not up to date
  -f, --force           Do not ask for confirmation,
                        will update everything available

Notes:
  - Short options should not be grouped. You must pass each parameter on its own.
  - You must have a working ssmtp install to use the ssmtp functionality. Make
    sure you can send e-mails from it before trying from opkg-upgrade.

Examples:
  opkg-upgrade.sh -n -f      # run without updating listings and asking for upgrade
  opkg-upgrade.sh --install  # install to /usr/sbin/opkg-upgrade
  opkg-upgrade.sh -l         # just print upgrades available
  opkg-upgrade.sh -e         # just print html formatted email
  opkg-upgrade.sh -s 'mail@example.com'    # mail upgrade report if have updates
  opkg-upgrade.sh -a -s 'mail@example.com' # mail upgrade report even if NO updates
  opkg-upgrade.sh -u && echo 'upgrades are available' || echo 'no upgrades available'

Example run:

# ./opkg-upgrade.sh

Please check for config file conflicts!

When all up-to-date:

No packages to install!

Install using git:

Clone it in current directory and use the -i option to install it to /usr/sbin/opkg-upgrade

# git clone git://github.com/tavinus/opkg-upgrade.git
# cd opkg-upgrade
# ./opkg-upgrade.sh -i

Install using curl or wget:

NOTE: curl / wget may fail because of missing SSL certificates.

You may choose to ignore the certificates check using:

  • curl -k
  • wget --no-check-certificate

Or you will need to fix your /etc/ssl/certs/ca-certificates.crt installation.
Please note that SSL support takes quite a lot of storage space.

This should be enough to make SSL work:

opkg install ca-certificates openssl-util

And this may be a workaround if you still have problems:

mkdir -p -m0755 /etc/ssl/certs && curl -k -o /etc/ssl/certs/ca-certificates.crt -L http://curl.haxx.se/ca/cacert.pem
