when i use update50, it takes a lot of time to download stuff. So, I pressed Ctrl + C to stop it. Is it fine if I don't use update50? Is it necessary to use update50? How much time does update50 take to update the appliance?
The time it takes to finish varies according to your connection speed. If it's the first time you run
update50 and say you have a 1Mbps internet connection it could take up to half an hour. (I give you the numbers I got from my experience). That is due to the fact that when the appliance was created the software included wasn't at the version it is now, so it has to update many of the components.
