In order to udpate the Raspian base OS, login via SSH as root, then:

apt update
apt dist-upgrade

The Raspbian operating system moves from older to newer Debian releases without changing repositories: it may happen that a system update (rarely) brakes the digital signage stack.

Changed status to publish

You can do:

apt update
apt upgrade

For updating only packages that are on the system already, to try minimizing the risk of bricking the system.

In order to stay tuned with full new releases, please subscribe to Binary Emotions Blog RSS feed or to the SourceForge mailing list, then please email me to request the system image (for donors); a complete rewrite is generally necessary.
