Installing statically linked tools
Statically linked versions of busybox and apk are needed, otherwise they will stop working after libc upgrade.
apk add busybox-static apk-tools-static
Changing repositories to v3.x
To begin, you need to update your /etc/apk/repositories file. Here are some shortcuts for doing so:
setup-apkreposEnter e to edit /etc/apk/repositories. Change the version number by hand.
- Or, edit the file in place. This is how you'd change v2.7 to v3.0:
sed -i -e 's/v2\.7/v3.0/g' /etc/apk/repositories
Use statically linked version of apk to update content of repository:
Simulating upgrade is recommended in order to detect issues beforehand:
apk.static upgrade --no-self-upgrade --simulate
With no problems encountered or after resolving them, start proper upgrade:
apk.static upgrade --no-self-upgrade
