Updating to 1.0 got stuck at downloading

I just got my Umbrel home. After plugin, I found that it’s on version 0.5 instead of 1.0. So I started updating to 1.0. The progress didn’t move after a few moments. Without noticing the prompts on the screen not to refresh or turn off Umbrel, I accidentally refreshed the page. Now the updating progress got stuck at downloading.

My issue was fixed by following the steps here: Umbrel home - sitting @ 20% done for 1.0 upgrade - #11 by smolgrrr. One thing to add is that the password for ‘umbrel’ is ‘umbrel’.

Great to hear! If you need any assistance with anything else, please let me know.

To resolve the issue, I SSH’d into the node using the default ‘umbrel’ username and password. After a reboot, I found myself unable to log back in with the default credentials, facing an ‘invalid password’ error, despite not changing the password myself.

This situation raises a few questions regarding the default ‘umbrel’ account:

  1. Security Best Practices: Is it recommended to change the default password or delete this account entirely for enhanced security?
  2. SSH Access Concerns: Given the default credentials, is there a significant risk of unauthorized SSH access to my Umbrel node? What steps can I take to mitigate this risk and ensure only authorized access to the node?
