LND updates

Check for the latest official release and notes: https://github.com/lightningnetwork/lnd/releases/
WARNING for every major version update: After the migration the LND database will be only compatible with that new version and above. This means that the update script needs to be run each time when a clean RaspiBlitz SDcard image is used to access the LND database.

Backup

Before updating it is most recommended to make a full backup of the LND directory. This is not be restored after LND is successfully restarted!
  • Run this line in the RaspiBlitz terminal to use the built-in script:
