Automate the update of the UniFi Network Controller

I have to maintain a few UniFi Network Controllers, and I didn’t like to use the Web Frontend to update them. Especially because I have to use different versions for different installations. This is mostly based on the fact that for some, we have to use newer versions or even early access releases (they include fixes for issues).

Most of the installations are based on the UBNT UniFi Cloud Key (Gen 1 and Gen 2), or Debian. If you use another Linux distribution, you have to adopt it to fit your requirements.

Ubiquiti UniFi Security Gateway (USG) our journey

We use a lot of Ubiquiti Access Points! Mostly the UniFi AP-AC-Pro Model. They are great, and the UniFi Controller makes it easy to manage them. My colleagues like the possibility to manage all locations within one simple to use Web UI. We have several locations where we provide wireless access, for our users and within a complete separated guest network.

Ubiquiti UniFi Security Gateway (USG) with Telekom VDSL and Vigor 130 as a Modem

In our Office Location we have a VDSL100 Business (up to 100 MBit/s downstream with an up to 40 MBit/s upstream) by Deutsche Telekom, with one (1) fixed IPv4 and a big IPv6 network. Before we had a FritzBox attached to the VDSL and used a pfSense behind it. The new setup (due to the issues with double NAT) looks like this: A Draytek Vigor130 as VDSL Modem and an UniFi Security Gateway 3P as Firewall/Router.
