If this is true, can I update the host OS with balenaHUP ? I have found this project, but I am not sure if it still works for me. Additionally, I have seen some issues on this GitHub page, but I have not read any responses to them since September 2022. Furthermore, I am running balenaOS on a Raspberry Pi 4, and I cannot find the Dockerfile for Raspberry Pi 4 on this project.
We know that there are some large fleets using openBalena. However, we as a company consider it still to be in Beta status. We don’t perform regular testing on the platform like we do balenaCloud, and we do not yet have feature-parity between the various services we offer as mentioned before.
What Dockerfile do you need? What project are you trying to build? did you check hub.balena.io?
I must have made it clean when I use this. The this in my sentence is balenaHUP. As far as I understood, this project builds a docker image to upgrade the host OS. There are Dockerfiles for RPi2, RPi3 but not for RPi4.
At first, I also understood that the information provided was all the differences between openBalena and Balena Cloud. However, when I tried to update the host OS and checked the Balena CLI documentation, I found the sentence stating that it is only supported on the cloud, as quoted above.
I’m afraid I don’t fully get your last statement. Do you have any further question on the remote hostOS update via the balena cli or not?
The balena cli supports host OS updates only when you run the device via balenaCloud und the device is actively connected to balenaCloud.
As I mentioned earlier, I understand that I can only update the host OS via OTA using balena cli when using balenaCloud.
I am here to inquire about the functionality of the balenaHUP project. Upon reviewing the files in this repository, I was unable to locate the files for the Raspberry Pi 4. However, there are files available for Raspberry Pi 2/3.
To clarify, I am not asking how to update the host OS without balenaCloud, but rather seeking information on experiences with this project.
However, upon further investigation, it seems that this project may not work properly.
