2020-02-07Implement the "safe upgrade" modeSergey Poznyakoff2
In safe upgrade mode, all the necessary package tarballs are first downloaded to the spool directory. Once downloaded, the program starts upgrading using these tarballs. Each tarball is removed after being processed. The old ("incremental") mode is used if there is not enough disk space for full download.

2019-09-19BugfixesSergey Poznyakoff3
* Add version-specific packages to installation candidates. Currently only upgrade between 14.1 and 14.2 receives special handling: the removed packages procps, udev and portmap are replaced by the corresponding packages in 14.2 * Abort immediately if any of essential packages cannot be downloaded.
2019-09-16Install all essential packages from the local storage.Sergey Poznyakoff1
Essential packages include glibc-solibs, package utilities and wget, if installing from the remote archive. They are all downloaded to the local disk, and then installed from the local copies. This makes sure the download agent (wget or curl) won't get broken in the process due to shared library mismatch. After installation wget is selected as the download agent.
