But it gets smoother.
Still no ‘just call the update command’ but at least better than before. This time a dependency created the most headache: ruby. But creating the package again after upgrade of the whole system from the AUR solved that issue. There are still some warnings and exceptions here and there, but the application is running again.
The upgrade of postgreSQL from 9.3 to 9.4 in the archlinux repository still caught me red-handed and prevented some services from starting. The upgrade instructions are straight forward and the problem was solved in less than 3 minutes.
Server completely up to date and running again is quite a satisfying experience. 🙂
My next concerns are now some more sophisticated backup routines…
