It is no longer available, as far as I can tell, from Hexxeh.

Ah, then the blog entry here:

https://www.raspberrypi.org/easy-firmwa ... om-hexxeh/

is incorrect, as it directs me to Hexxeh's site which makes no mention of rpi-updater.

That was posted on 10th May 2012 at 6:49 pm. rpi-update is no longer required or recommended. When looking at pi-relate information it's important to check how recent it is. Things change all the time.

Oh, for crying out loud. Where DO I find CURRENT information on managing my RPi 2?

What do you want to know?

Once the Pi has booted you really don't need to do anything. Upgrades are entirely optional. "Managing" the Pi is just like any Linux system.

Code: Select all

apt-get update; apt-get dist-upgrade
That's all you need to do.
