Before my question is immediately is ignored; I know that this topic has been discussed and Sam already mentioned he is not in favor to implement it.
But, please consider the following. I have currently 4 OSMC installations around the house and updating consumes quite a lot of my time. I know it just ones a month and if you also count in the security updates it’s sometimes more than ones a month. So like the month of January I have to install 4 times 2 updates, so … there you go. But maybe even more important is the wife acceptance factor. The moment my wife wants to watch a movie and sees a message that an update is available, she doens’t know what to do, and calls me for help. And I’m not ready yet, my son does the same
I know that a fully automatic update function can potentially break the OSMC install. In my case it’s not a big issue if the OSMC install breaks, given that all the content is stored on a NAS and the library is stored also on the NAS (mysql). Reinstalling it, just takes 10 minutes by flashing the SD card.
Please reconsider to build a fully automatic update install, and make it optional for the user, and disable it by default. You could even show a warning that fully automatic update install has for some users disadvantages
