Upgrading from OMV 5 to OMV 6 - command not recognized omv-update

  • Hi,

    I've been trying to upgrade from OMV 5 to OMV 6 but when I run the command omv-release-upgrade or omv-update I get command not found. I'm am SSH'ing into OMV and running the commands as root user. I don't understand what I am missing here.

  • Code
    root@jupiter:~# dpkg -l | grep usrmerge

    root@jupiter:~# echo "$PATH"
  • Run apt install usrmerge and after check for any updates via OMV GUI.


    Run omv-release-upgrade

  • I checked and there are no updates,


    I ran the command omv-release-upgrade and got command not found

    zsh: command not found: omv-release-upgrade

    (i also tried it in bash too - same error)

    I've tried (as sudo and switch to su account) the following with no luck.

    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get upgrade
    sudo apt-get omv-update
    sudo apt-get omv-upgrade

    sudo apt-get update && apt-get –yes –force-yes –fix-missing –auto-remove –allow-unauthenticated –show-upgraded –option DPkg::Options::=“–force-confold” dist-upgrade

    I tried apt-get install openmediavault

    openmediavault is already the newest version (5.6.26-1).
    0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 0 not upgraded.

    it looks like it doesn't have the right repositories

  • That partially worked... it was the first time I ran omv-update without getting an error. Here is a screen shot of the commands you gave me



    echo $PATH

    dpkg -l | grep usrmerge

    sudo omv-update



    I just tried the following and it seems to be upgrading to OMV 6.0....

    Added the Label resolved
  • Just a remark:

    Your user is ubuntudesktop.

    On what OS are you running OMV?

  • And run dpkg -l | grep openm 

    Your list of plugins seems to contain old stuff.

    If you got help in the forum and want to give something back to the project click here (omv) or here (scroll down) (plugins) and write up your solution for others.
