Update Manually on Ubuntu or Debian

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 the native package. Ripple recommends setting up automatic updates instead, where possible.

Caution: Ripple renewed the GPG key used to sign binary packages shortly before the release of v1.7.0. If you are upgrading to v1.7.0 from an earlier package, you must first download and manually trust the updated public key as follows:

wget -q -O - "https://repos.ripple.com/repos/api/gpg/key/public" | \
  sudo apt-key add -

For more information, see the rippled 1.7.0 release notes .

Tip: To perform these steps all at once, you can run the /opt/ripple/bin/update-rippled.sh script, which is included with the rippled package and is compatible with Ubuntu and Debian. This script should be run as a sudo user.

To update manually, complete the following steps:

  1. Update repositories:

    $ sudo apt -y update
  2. Upgrade the rippled package:

    $ sudo apt -y upgrade rippled
  3. Reload the systemd unit files:

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

    $ sudo service rippled restart
