Whenever I need or want to update the packages on my Linux machines I use these four commands. The first downloads the updates of the repository and tells the system which packages can be upgraded. The second upgrades packages that don't have new and uninstalled dependencies. The third upgrades the packages that do have those and also installs those new dependencies. The last one, finally, deletes any downloaded .deb files to free up disk space.

sudo apt update
sudo apt upgrade -y
sudo apt dist-upgrade -y
sudo apt clean

Now, I don't use StellarMate so I do not know if these commands can and will break your system. USE AT YOUR OWN RISK!!!

There is no INdI server for windows.
You only need and can only have Kstars / Ekos on your windows machine, then that connects to an INdI server running remotely on either another Mac, Linux or raspberry PI machine at the mount...
So the comtrol is done with the windows machine, but the remote machine CANT be a windows as it has to have INdI server on it... Hope that explains


Thanks for the correction. It is clear that I am not a Windows user :)

If I understand correctly, the INDI server is needed on Windows for KStars/Ekos to connect to and it acts as a bridge to connect to the Linux INDI running remotely. In other words, Ekos needs a local INDI server to cnnect to no matter what. But the astronomical hardware cannot be controlled directly from a Windows machine and Linux or macos is needed for that.

Very interesting indeed. You have to see through the advertisement for SharpCap and fortunately there isn’t much of that :)

In order to run Ekos on a Windows machine you need to have a Linux or Mac machine running INDI and connect to that.

Just out of interest, which hub did you buy? I might get one of those myself as well...
