If i try to update base-files, I get:
Upgrading base-files on root from 171-r0+2311 to 171-r0+2320...
umount: devpts busy - remounted read-only
umount: tmpfs busy - remounted read-only
umount: can't remount tmpfs read-only
umount: proc busy - remounted read-only
- copy_file: unable to open `/etc/group-opkg.backup': Read-only file system.
- file_copy: Failed to copy file /etc/group to /etc/group-opkg.backup.
- backup_make_backup: Failed to copy /etc/group to /etc/group-opkg.backup
- pkg_write_filelist: Failed to open //usr/lib/opkg/info/base-files.list: Read-only file system.
Is that correct?
I would not recommend trying to update base-files. The scripts and config defaults included can be pretty tightly tied to certain core packages, so having a mix of core packages and base-files from different builds can lead to unexpected results.
OK. But how should I upgrade my base-files as there is no custom ugrade image for my Cisco Meraki MR18... Thanks for any advice.

[/quote]Likely you need to upgrade the whole firmware the same way as you originally installed it (if there is no upgrade image). In general, there is no reason to upgrade base-files separately. They are more or less part of the core firmware.
Thx. That's what I feared...
