This document describes how to update an Aeternity node using a release binary:

Manual update

Ubuntu 18.04

Be sure to have a backup of your files, don't remove your node database.

Download the latest version of the æternity node

curl -Lf -o aeternity.tar.gz{version}-ubuntu-x86_64.tar.gz

Once done, stop your node by:

/path/to/your/node/bin/aeternity stop

Decompress your new node version overwritting the old version:

tar -xzf aeternity.tar.gz -C /path/to/your/node;

And start your node again:

/path/to/your/node/bin/aeternity daemon

Now check that your node is up and running by :

curl localhost:3013/v2/blocks/top
