Parameters

Comments

fetch_only

  • yes ← (default)

force

boolean

Force upgrade (for snapshots only).

Choices:

  • no ← (default)

  • yes

installurl

string

OpenBSD mirror top-level URL for fetching an upgrade.

By default, the mirror URL is pulled from /etc/installurl.

boolean

Keep the files under /home/_sysupgrade.

By default, the files will be deleted after the upgrade.
