Targeting Mender-Connect 1.2+

Our organization is currently using the hosted professional version of mender. We ran into an issue with some client devices. We want to target mender-client_3.1.0-1_amd64 and mender-connect 1.2.+.

We have no problem targeting the mender version using;

DEBIAN_FRONTEND=noninteractive dpkg -i mender-client_3.1.0-1_amd64.deb

The problem is there is no documentation on how to target mender-connect 1.2.+. Just using the apt install seems to target 2.0.+, which then updates mender to 3.2.

What is the best way to target the mender-connect version?


Hello @mattschlein ,

I know all those packages are in an apt repo, so I believe it should be something very similar.

Here are the instructions for installing the apt repo, that contains both the client and connect: Downloads | Mender documentation

Is your problem that you need to download the .deb package of mender-connect? Otherwise I am pretty sure you can pin a specific version to install of either component using apt-get (I don’t quite recall the command but this should be standard apt usage).
