No rpi-update command, cannot install via apt-get

I’m pretty new to RPi and PiMusicBox is my first RPi project.
I want to update and install certain new features in 0.7RC4 (latest) so I can drive a mini TFT display. However, commands such as rpi-update oder apt-get install rpi-update fail.
Can anybody point me in the right direction?

I’m logging in via SSH (Putty) - so root access is enabled.


We do not support those commands, you can use them but the state of the system afterwards is yours to sort out. The firmware in RC4 is very recent, are you sure you need to update it further?

If you are still sure you want to update then it should be sufficient to do:

apt-get update && apt-get install rpi-update

And I’m going to repeat myself, this is not supported.

Ok thanks. I had a strange network issue that prevented apt-get update from completing successfully. It is working now.
