As Eric Fort as pointed out (thanks Eric!), these was a problem in the
previous instructions. Here are the revised update instructions:


1. Change directories to /root

2. Do an ls to list the files. If you don't have an astupd.sh file STOP.
Your ACID install is too old and you will need to do a fresh install
which will install the latest version automatically. If you have to
re-install, make a backup of your config files in  /etc/asterisk so that
you can restore them to the new install.

3. If you have an astupd.sh file delete it by typing:

rm astupd.sh

4. You will need to update it by downloading a new version. Use the
following wget command from the /root directory to do this:

wget http://dl.allstarlink.org/installcd/astupd.sh

5. Make it executable by typing:

chmod 755 astupd.sh

6. To update Asterisk, type:

./astupd.sh

7. Your system will now be updated if it is not running the latest
Asterisk version. Wait for the download and compile to
complete.

8. Reboot your system and check to see that your node is functioning
properly.
