Updating BitNinja

BitNinja will auto-update the newest version on the server.

How can you check which is the newest version number?โ€‹

  • Check our Agent Changelog
  • On the BitNinja Dashboard next to the serverโ€™s name there will be a yellow exclamation mark, if your agent needs to be updated

In case of unusual events when the auto-update does not start there shall be a problem with the package manager.

How can you manually update if the newest version is not running on the server?โ€‹

Please use the following commands.

Debian, Ubuntu:

apt-get update

apt-get install bitninja


yum check-update

yum update bitninja

How can I update the GPG key?โ€‹

If the installation fails on Debian/Ubuntu because of the GPG key, you can use the following commands to update:

apt-get update

apt-key adv --keyserver --recv-key 7F8B47DC

If this doesn't work, you can use the following command:

wget -O- | apt-key add -
