Nitrux Devs Make It Easier to Upgrade Your Immutable Nitrux OS Installations
Nitrux Update Tool System (NUTS) command-line utility is now available for Nitrux users and it can also perform rollbacks.
Nitrux developer Uri Herrera has been working on a new utility that would make it a lot easier for existing users to upgrade their immutable Nitrux Linux installations to newer releases, called Nitrux Update Tool System (NUTS).
Until now, upgrading your Nitrux installations to newer releases involved downloading the latest ISO image, writing on a USB flash drive, booting it on your Nitrux machine, and performing an installation using the Calamares installer where you had to make sure that it doesn’t overwrite your /home directory.
Upgrading your Linux distro should be a straightforward process where you open a tool, check for new versions, and perform the upgrade with a few mouse clicks. Nitrux was missing such a tool until now, as the devs announced Nitrux Update Tool System, or NUTS for short.
