N00b Question | Package upgrades

I'm new to OpenWrt and can see that there are quite a few packages with the option to upgrade.

I upgraded a couple without thinking and then searched the forum for advice, which appears to be 'don't do it for core packages'.

What about 'opkg'? I that something I should be updating?

** Just to clarify for any future readers - the solution is don't upgrade core packages such as opkg, but it is OK to upgrade Adblock. **

Upgrading packages (via the CLI opkg upgrade command or the LuCI Upgrade... button) can result in major problems. It is generally highly discouraged, unless you know what you are doing or if there is specific instruction to do so.


Is it OK to upgrade add on packages such as Adblock?

Yes, you can upgrade that.

Thanks for clarrifying.
