JingPad A1 - Update failed

Hi there!

I am trying for several days now to do an automatic software update on my JingPad and keep getting the message “system update to 1.1.1 error” without further information. Does anyone else have this problem?

Yeah, I think that happens if you update via the user interface. I always update via the standard ubuntu linux way, via command line (the konsole app with icon that looks like “>_”, just type these in it:

sudo apt update
sudo apt upgrade

it will ask for password, which is the pin number and press enter key.

those commands can sometimes not work if the interface is using apt, it will say something about a lock file. in which case you can either wait and try again or reset the tablet.

the first command updates the repositories, the second one upgrades all packages.
