Update Manually on Ubuntu

This page describes how to update manually to the latest release of rippled on Ubuntu Linux. These instructions assume you have already installed rippled using Alien.

To update manually, complete the following steps:

  1. Update the package list from Ripple's yum repository:

    $ sudo rpm -Uvh --replacepkgs https://mirrors.ripple.com/ripple-repo-el7.rpm
  2. Download the latest rippled package:

    $ yumdownloader --enablerepo=ripple-stable --releasever=el7 rippled
  3. Verify the signatures on the downloaded packages:

    $ rpm -K rippled*.rpm
  4. Use Alien to upgrade to the new rippled package:

    $ sudo alien -i --scripts rippled*.rpm
  5. Reload the systemd unit files:

    $ sudo systemctl daemon-reload
  6. Restart the rippled service:

    $ sudo service rippled restart
  7. Delete the downloaded rippled package file:

    $ rm rippled*.rpm

    (This does not affect the installation, but prevents later updates from trying to re-install the old version.)
