Problems updating the Software from the Admin menu


Hi @all!

If you have problems updating the sofware from the admin menu (i.e. you get an ERROR message), use this thread to post a photo or description of the message.



Hi Fernando,

yes - I have update problem. When updating from shell I get this:

Updating zynthian-ui ...
 * branch            mod        -> FETCH_HEAD
Updating a6438bc..a3666f4
error: Your local changes to the following files would be overwritten by merge:
Please, commit your changes or stash them before you can merge.


cd /zynthian/zynthian-ui
git checkout .

it works.

Regards, Holger


… additional:

After update my encoder configuration is lost. Perhaps this can be putted in a file which can’t be erased/overwritten by updates?

Regards, Holger


I think that now it’s solved. Update system should make a copy of your configuration and restore it after updating.

Plase, reconfigure your encoder configuration and try again.

Anyway, i’m working in a better configuration system :wink:



Many thanks! It seems to work - but perhaps because I manually updated before… will try this soon for my other Zynthian (it’s good to have more than one :wink:!)

Regards, Holger


Hi @jofemodo,
