    Known issues

    • Incremental upgrades are much slower to apply than before. You can expect it to take around an hour after the upgrade has been downloaded. See 10757 for details.

    • If your system clock is incorrect, then bridge mode will not work. One way to work around this is to correct the system before connecting to the network, which will require setting an administration password.

    See the current list of known issues.

    If your Tails does not boot after an automatic upgrade, please upgrade your Tails manually.
