Jackett keeps crashing

Jackett keeps crashing (disabled) after 10-20s, have to refresh it through the dashboard to get it working again. Running on Ubuntu 16.04 and QuickBox 2.4.4. There is a new version of Jackett available, but QuickBox doesn’t update it to the new version when i check for update (the newest version of Jackett is 0.7.296)

Hey @wizard, I have noticed this as well. We’ll make an update script for Jackett today as this is rather inconvenient.

You can fix this for now by manually updating and the process is very simple… here’s how:

cd /home/username
jackettver=$(wget -q https://github.com/Jackett/Jackett/releases/latest -O - | grep -E \/tag\/ | awk -F "[><]" '{print $3}')
wget -q https://github.com/Jackett/Jackett/releases/download/$jackettver/Jackett.Binaries.Mono.tar.gz
tar -xvzf Jackett.Binaries.Mono.tar.gz
rm Jackett.Binaries.Mono.tar.gz
chown username.username -R Jackett

Your settings will stay in tact as well so this method is safe. I attempted this an hour ago on an install that was producing the same crash as you describe. Since the update (thus far) it has been stable and there have been no crashes.


The function for updating Jackett has been added. You may now type upgradeJackett as root to perform the update without needing to perform any additional commands.

Here is the commit for anyone to review:
