What is the difference between update and upgrade?

on 8/8/13, 3:50 PM 2,696 views

In the 7.0 module Address Book I see buttons for UPDATE and for UPGRADE.

What is the difference between them.

What happens if I UPDATE and what are the benefits and concerns?

What happens if I UPGRADE and what are the benefits and concerns?

Why is the upgrade button RED and if I click on it a lot of things seems to happen but the versionnumber don't change and the button is again RED?

Version 7.0-20130806-231058 on Synology DS112J.

Also Version 7.0-20130226-002110 on Synology DS211+.

Please add system Information.

A Update push the module code in to the DB.

The Upgrade replace the code with the modules newest version.

Update :-( Upgrade :-( is currently unavailable on Debian/Ubuntu see at nightly.openerp.com/

But! correct me if Im wrong! the tar.gz will NOT update the modules?

Is "Update" related to Openerp hosting the software? - We have our own server and it just crashes out when we try "Update"?
