Upgrading Armbian to the newest version

I have an OPZ+ server with Armbian buster that has the following information

 

cat /etc/armbian-release

I see on the download page of Armbian OPZ+

That there is a new version of Armbian out.

 

Armbian_20.05.2_Orangepizeroplus_buster_current_5.4.43.img.xz

 

As you can see i am currently running the 4.19 kernel and version 5.91 of Armbian.

How do i go around to upgrade my current Armbian to the Newest version of Armbian.

As in upgrade or similar. I dont wish to reinstall to much work in that.

You can use armbian-config to switch to the current kernel branch. For the rest a simple upgrade should do it.

Is that under

 

Armbian-config -> System Settings -> Other (Switch to other kernels)

 

And then just pick the newest version.


Or do i go about it some where else i armbian-config?

Ty for pointing me in the right direction.

 

I found this site

 

 

and it explained what to do.

So i choose the current branch and now everything looks like this

 

cat /etc/armbian-release

# PLEASE DO NOT EDIT THIS FILE
BOARD=orangepizeroplus
BOARD_NAME="Orange Pi Zero Plus"
BOARDFAMILY=sun50iw2
BUILD_REPOSITORY_URL=https://github.com/armbian/build
BUILD_REPOSITORY_COMMIT=eb9dad92
DISTRIBUTION_CODENAME=buster
DISTRIBUTION_STATUS=supported
VERSION=20.05.2
LINUXFAMILY=sunxi64
BRANCH=current
ARCH=arm64
IMAGE_TYPE=stable
BOARD_TYPE=conf
INITRD_ARCH=arm64
KERNEL_IMAGE_TYPE=Image

lsb_release -a

No LSB modules are available.
Distributor ID: Debian
Description:    Debian GNU/Linux 10 (buster)
Release:        10
Codename:       buster

uname -a

Linux orangepizeroplus 5.4.43-sunxi64 #20.05.2 SMP Tue Jun 2 17:20:17 CEST 2020 aarch64 GNU/Linux

So i think everything is as it should be.

 

Ty for your time,

Darkyere
