For the life of me I can't figure out why my Pi won't update to the December update of RASPBMC. I've tried forcing the update as explained on RASPBMC website but that didn't work. Any ideas?

  • I finally managed to sort it. Something I thought I had already tried.

  • sudo mv /scripts/upd_sys/ftr.sh /tmp/ sudo rm /scripts/upd_sys/*.sh sudo mv /tmp/ftr.sh /scripts/upd_sys/ sudo wget svn.stmlabs.com/svn/raspbmc/testing/update-system/getfile.sh -O /scripts/upd_sys/getfile.sh

  • Scrap that. It did force and update but I'm still on the November version.

raspbmc along with most distributions for the raspberrypi are fast changing and sometimes buggy (aka not old-stable). Just backup the data, install the latest version (OSMC), and restore the date.
