Unable to update (FTL can't install)

#1

I have had this problem ever since installing Pi-hole in a docker container on my FreeNAS server. Is there something I’m doing wrong?

Current versions:
Pi-hole Version v3.0.1 (Update available!) Web Interface Version v3.0.1 (Update available!) FTL Version v2.7.4 (Update available!)

Serial console when trying to run pihole -up:

/ # pihole -up

How do I update Pi-hole?
#2

What Docker container are you using? You should try this one: https://hub.docker.com/r/diginc/pi-hole/

I’m using the one that was in the FreeNAS collection, the readme says this:

About this image
This Docker image is based on the image of Diginc.
The project’s README.md contains an overview of the available environment variables and volume mounts.

That leads me to believe I am using the one you suggested.

Well, looks like I got it fixed!

/ # pihole -up
::: Checking for updates…
::: Pi-hole Core: up to date
::: FTL: up to date
::: Web Interface: up to date
:::
::: Everything is up to date!

I just re-installed the docker container manually using “docker pull diginc/pi-hole” on my docker host console, reconfigured using my previous container’s settings, and it’s up and running! It looks a little different on my FreeNAS UI, and is named “silly_wing”, and doesn’t have a “Web UI” button like my other containers, but it’s all good now, so I’m happy.

Thanks for pushing me in the right directions Mcat12!

Reopening this. Now that I had successfully reinstalled the updated version, I checked in after a little bit. Update available for Web Interface and FTL. Ran console command and here’s what came up:

/ # pihole -up

All this run from my virtual console on my FreeNAS machine.

Will I have to re-install Pi-Hole every time I need an update?

For docker installations, you should wait until the image gets updated and then redeploy it (that’s the docker way of updating). There’s a tracking issue for 3.2 here: https://github.com/diginc/docker-pi-hole/issues/196

It looks like debian is available under the dev tag, but alpine is still in the works.
