ArcaOS - Download latest version
« on: June 01, 2020, 04:16:11 am »
I have missed a couple of updates to ArcaOS. Where do I find and download the latest issue?

Also when will it be possible (if it is not already) to update my existing installation with changes without having to completely reinstall ArcaOS?

TIA

Log into your account at Arca Noae. You might have to renew your account, see here, https://www.arcanoae.com/shop/arcaos-5-0-support-maintenance/
And yes, the latest version allows updating a previous install of ArcaOS. 5.05 should be out once the last few bugs are ironed out, hopefully soon but ironing out bugs takes as long as needed.

Thanks. I logged into my account - I have a current account - but I can't find where to download the latest OS version. All I get is a list of subscription renewals. ???

Hi Paul

When you have logged in you should be on this page https://www.arcanoae.com/my-account/

Click on the "Orders and Subscriptions" link to load this page https://www.arcanoae.com/my-account/orders/

Then it gets less obvious - I have to click my original Order No. for ArcaOS5 (from May 2017) which takes me to a page with with Order Details https://www.arcanoae.com/my-account/view-order/xxxx/ - where xxxx is the Order No.
This page contains a lot of clickable links for update packages for ArcaOS .


Regards

Pete

Thanks. Like you I had to go back to my 2017 order. I have selected ArcaOS ISO and requested a rebuild. I presume this will give me the latest version including all of the updates listed below. on the web page.

Hi Paul.

Yes, it will give you the ISO once it creates it for you.
You will get 5.0.4 (Jul 2019)

Here it is the changelog for you to read.

Thanks Martin. Just to confirm, this version does NOT require me to completely reinstall ArcaOS - that is, it is an in-place upgrade?

Hi Paul, it does do the in place upgrade, usually pretty well, though a backup is always a good idea.
It'll only include the updates that were released before Jul 2019, others you will have to apply or wait for 5.0.5, which is close to done but as usual the remaining issues may take longer then expected to finalize.
