[[!meta title="Error while checking for upgrades"]]
Tails could not determine whether an upgrade is available from our website. This is most likely caused by a network connection problem.
To solve it:
Check your network connection and restart Tails to check for upgrades again.
Read our [[release notes|doc/upgrade/release_notes]] to see if there are known issues with automatically upgrading to the latest version of Tails.
If the problem persists, do a [[manual upgrade|doc/upgrade#manual]].
<a id="4.18"></a>
Automatic upgrades are broken between Tails 4.15 and Tails 4.18
To upgrade from Tails 4.15, Tails 4.16, Tails 4.17, or Tails 4.18, you can either:
- Do a [[manual upgrade|doc/upgrade#manual]].
- Fix the automatic upgrade from a terminal. To do so:
Start Tails and set up an [[administration password|doc/first_steps/welcome_screen/administration_password]].
In a terminal, execute the following command:
torsocks curl --silent https://tails.boum.org/isrg-root-x1-cross-signed.pem \
| sudo tee --append /usr/local/etc/ssl/certs/tails.boum.org-CA.pem \
&& systemctl --user restart tails-upgrade-frontend
<div class="note">
<p>This command is a single command that wraps across several lines.
Copy and paste the entire block at once and make sure that it executes
as a single command.</p>
</div>
Approximately 30 seconds later, you should be prompted to upgrade to the latest version of Tails. If no prompt appears, you might already be running the latest version of Tails.
