Change from Release to SnapShots

Is it possible to change your install from a Release version to the latest snapshot via an upgrade?

I did the following, but seems stayed at the current release.

  1. Stopped OH2
  2. Removed the sources.list
  3. Readded the snapshot list
  4. Apt-update and Apt-upgrade

But OH2 didn’t update and stayed at the current version.

With the new sources in place and OH2 stopped.

I ran “sudo apt-get install openhab2” and it upgraded me to the snapshot build while maintainting all my configs. Backup just in case !

i was able to verify this by ssh’ing into karaf and seeing the build #

That seems to have worked, but I seem unable to connect into the Karaf Console to confirm.

ptmuldoon@OpenHab2:~$ ssh openhab@localhost -p 8101
Unable to negotiate with port 8101: no matching host key type found. Their offer: ssh-dss

Try to remove from your stored config the existing key. Maybe this will help:

ssh-keygen -f "/root/.ssh/known_hosts" -R [localhost]:8101

Yes I tried that but it did’t work.

This could have been caused by an update and upgrade to Ubuntu itself. A google search said to add the “-oHostKeyAlgorithms=+ssh-dss” to the argument

So this did work,

ssh -oHostKeyAlgorithms=+ssh-dss openhab@localhost -p 8101
