vzpkg update

The vzpkg update command is used to update either the OS EZ template a Container is based on or any of the application EZ templates inside the Container. Besides, you can use this command to update the software packages installed inside your Container by means of the vzpkg install command. It has the following syntax:

vzpkg update [options] <CT_ID>|<CT_NAME> [<object> [...]]

The following options can be used with vzpkg update:

Name

Description

-C, --cache

Makes the vzpkg update command look for the package updates in the local vzpkg cache only.

You can omit this parameter if the elapsed time from the last vzpkg cache update does not exceed the value of the METADATA_EXPIRE parameter specified in the /etc/vztt/vztt.conf file.

-r, --remote

If the elapsed time from the last vzpkg cache update does not exceed the value of the METADATA_EXPIRE parameter specified in the /etc/vztt/vztt.conf file, you should use this option to make vzpkg update look for the package updates in the remote repositories set for handling the corresponding EZ templates.

-p, --package

Updates the packages installed inside the Container by using the vzpkg install command.

-f, --force

Forces the EZ template/package update procedure.

-n, --check-only

Simulates the same operations as vzpkg update completes without specifying this option (downloads the updated packages to the Hardware Node, handles their interdependencies, etc.); however, the packages themselves are not updated.

-d, --debug
<
num>

Sets the debugging level to one of the specified values (from 0 to 10). 10 is the highest debug level and 0 sets the debug level to its minimal value.

-q, --quiet

Disables logging to the screen and to the log file.

Without any option specified, vzpkg update updates all EZ templates (including the OS EZ template) inside the Container with the ID of <CT_ID> or the name of <CT_NAME>. However, you can make the command update a particular EZ template by specifying its name as <object>. You can also use the -p option to make the command update the packages installed inside the Container by using vzpkg install instead of EZ templates.
