Note: If your beacon node is already running, you'll need to disconnect and reconnect for the changes to take effect.
To update to the latest version, either download the binary or compile the beacon node release.
Tip: To check which version of Nimbus you're currently running, run
Open the latest Nimbus eth2 release and copy the link for the file that works on your system.
wget <insert download link here> tar -xzf nimbus-eth2_Linux_arm64v8*.tar.gz -C nimbus-eth2 rm nimbus-eth2_Linux_arm64v8*.tar.gz
⚠️ In order to minimise downtime, we recommend updating and rebuilding the beacon node before restarting.
git pull && make update
v1.4.0, releases are marked with the following tags:
low-urgency: update at your own convenience, sometime within our normal update cycle of two weeks
medium-urgency: may contain an important stability fix, it is better to update sooner rather than later
high-urgency: update as soon as you can, this is a critical update required for Nimbus to function correctly
