Sparky upgrade via terminal.
« on: October 10, 2020, 06:03:53 pm »
Hello,
I having run as routine of each booting a command line started with sudo apt update and so on.
Among them the Sparky-Upgrade as well. They having been run in order previously and for the year today, except once. Then the process has been stopped and asked for password only for Sparky-Upgrade again. I had immediately checked my request, and I found to typed each request including ... && sudo sparky-upgrade &&…correctly, so I do not think so, it was a simple typing error. The processes before and after the Sparky-Upgrade request had been taken place smoothly.
I have no idea what has been taken place, was it a virus or any similar. The virus scanner did not report any infection that time and until so far.
What would has been taken time during the update/update process? Is it necessary to take any steps in settings in order to avoid next case?
Thanks.

Different OS  different malware.    Viruses are basically a windows thing, much lesser on modified FreeBSD Apple. Very very rare in linux.  Calm. 

   "sudo apt update"   "sudo apt upgrade"  (use apt full-upgrade if in rolling - testing)   should be enough.   Occasional autoclean,   a rare autoremove if in stable.  Those steps should run through your entire /etc/apt/sources .....    repositories.   

Others are wiser than me.  wait for their replies

It might have had something to do with keyring upgrade issues

opps his other post at the end was more correct as it had pavroos comment.

Dear Paxmark1,
thanks 4 yr quick respond.
I agree on U, but on the other side, I had heard at least 3 Linux viruses like emotet during nowadays (Aug/Sept), so keep my powder dry.
I’m gonna modify my routine: change full-upgrade 2 upgrade thus stable version.
I do not want 2 appreciate any person, when I wait just a little before <solving>.
No Covid 4 every person.

Run your browser in Firejail from the repository and have gufw firewall enabled and use common sense web habits you should be good.




I'm grumpy because I can be not because I'm old.

Hello 151tom,
I usually do not use the Firejail sandbox, but use always the UFW enabled, I am gonna check it and hope a good result.
Thanks for paying attention to me.
Have a nice day, nemomen.
