Thank you for the response. Did it and things are churning along as normal.
I have the same error apt clean did not help. If i do apt update from CLI I have extra option to accept the changeQuote
E: Repository 'http://security.debian.org/debian-security buster/updates InRelease' changed its 'Suite' value from 'stable' to 'oldstable'
N: This must be accepted explicitly before updates for this repository can be applied. See apt-secure(8) manpage for details.
Do you want to accept these changes and continue updating from this repository? [y/N]
Should I accept the change?
Yup making a live system clone with borgupdates is too advanced for me. For some reason it doesn't work their documentation says this should be the command
Where $DISK is I suppose my physical device lets say /dev/sda . I did try /dev/sda1 which where / is mounted with similar result. I exclude at least /dev because documentation says we might get into infinite loop if we try to back up /dev/zero with --read-special.
I will just stick to fsarchive for auto live back up. And from time to time I will make manual off-line back up using USBimager.
Borg/the plugin backs up the root file system, which you can specify if not detected automatically
FYI I did check out the source code and omv-backup plugin with option borg has the root hard coded in it. It will always back up only / directory. It will not care even if someone manually sets root dir form the plugin web interface.
Fsarchiver is great in this case because it is actually made to backup a file system to a compressed archive.
Borg is designed for normal file backup
For SD-cards, it's easier to simply clone them
Well I will looking into that. I will test making a full disk image with borg. If it works it could be added as a back up option.
BTW I did test fsarchiever and it works perfectly. I will use it if borg doesn't pin out. Thank you ryecoaaron for making it so easy to back up and restore.
I am using omv on a rpie. The system is installed on a SD
I decided to try out borg. Simulating a scenario where my SD card dies.
My boot is a separate partition and it seems that borg doesn't back up those files. I was wondering if it is the same for you?
When I tried to list the files in the boot dir it shows no files. Don't I need them to restore my /boot?
Seeing that you are running a VM I saw some info in borg documentation check it. Dunno how relevant that is.
I will try fsarchiever and maybe use that.
