Upgrading VyOS (or Vyatta) to 1.1.7

So you have an old Vyatta or VyOS router that needs an upgrade? Updating to the latest (1.1.7 as of this writing) is easy!

Login to your router, and from the opmode (not configuration) area, run the following:

add system image

The system should download the latest firmware from the vyos mirrors. Press enter for the prompts to complete the upgrade.

Once the upgrade is completed, you will need to reboot to take effect. If now is a good time, go ahead and issue “reboot”, otherwise schedule your reboot for some time that is convenient and perform the update then. If your date and time is correct, you could also issue something like “reboot at midnight” or “reboot at 23:30”.
