Sonarr version (exact version): 220.127.116.110
Mono version (if Sonarr is not running on Windows): 18.104.22.168
OS: Ubuntu 20.04.1
Description of issue:
Every day, sonarr makes 4 backups. The reason is “Before update”. My backups folder is spammed with backups, because there are 4 made every day. Looking through the logs, I noticed that every time it’s downloading 22.214.171.1246. It’s updating to 126.96.36.1996 4 times a day.
You can ignore the manual backups. Those were made when I was messing around with the sonar api.
I thinks that it has to do with the auto update. I have it enabled as you can see in the first picture. My current version (188.8.131.520) is quite a few versions older than the newest (184.108.40.2066), eventhough I have the option to automatically update on.
I think it has to do with the fact that it isn’t able to automatically install the update, so it stops. Then a few hours later, it checks again and notices that there is still a new version because it failed to update the previous time. So it makes a backup before updating. But because it fails every time to update, it starts trying (and failing) to update every few hours. Leading to the creation of a backup every few hours.
