Therefore that Observium doesn't use APT for updating, it can't be upgraded with unattended-upgrades for example. Nevertheless Observium can automatically be upgraded with a crontab:

This way of updating was only tested for the enterprise version of Observium!

Create a crontab file with the following content:


echo ""
echo "» Updating  Observium to latest version «"
echo ""
echo ""
/usr/bin/svn update /opt/observium --non-interactive --no-auth-cache --username <username> --password <password>
echo ""
echo "» Update finished «"
echo ""
# touch this file to leave a fingerprint, if mailing fails
touch /root/updated.txt

In case that your system has a proper configured mailutils-package, the output of the crontab will be sent to the configured mail address at MAILTO=.
