Update from 6.7.2 to 7.0.0 via deb file showing wrong version?


I just updated Grafana on my Raspberry Pi from 6.7.2 to 7.0.0 via deb file. The file was downloaded with wget and installed with “sudo dpkg -i grafana_7.0.0_armhf.deb”

The update went through without error message. When I check on the start page of my Grafana, it still shows “Version 6.7.2 (423a25fc32)” on the lower right though. But the package seems to be installed.

Is this a display issue in the UI?


P.S.: In /var/log/grafana/grafana.log is a warning about a deprecated “phantomJS”, which for me would hint at 7.0 being installed.

Have you:

a) restarted the grafana service on the Pi?

b) refreshed your browser window pointing at it?


Thanks for trying to help.

a) yes, even rebooted the pi
b) yes, and even tried a browser which I’ve never used to access Grafana by now

Even the login screen shows the old version number and a notification about an available update:

First installed version on the system was 6.7.2, was also installed from a downloaded deb-file.

Doh… Just noticed that for the 6.7.2 install I seem to have used the armv6-version, now trying to install the armv7. Might that be the cause?
