Get Tails 3.6

  • We do not provide automatic upgrades from older Tails installations for this release, as we've hit an old bug while generating the necessary files (#13426). You have to upgrade manually.

    Wenn Sie ein manuelles Upgrade von Tails 3.2, 3.3, 3.4 oder 3.5 machen, ist es nur möglich ein ISO-Image auszuwählen, wenn Tails in englischer Sprache benutzt wird. Für andere Sprachen bleibt der Knopf zur Dateiauswahl inaktiv:

    Um ein manuelle Aktualisierung von Tails 3.2, 3.3, 3.4 oder 3.5 durchzuführen, können Sie entweder:

    • Tails in Englisch neustarten.

    • Den Tails Installer in Englisch vom Terminal aus starten:

      LANG=en_US tails-installer
  • Download Tails 3.6.
