Re: Updating modules odoo 8by
You are confusing two different things: updating the module's source code from the upstream repository to get a newer version (or roll back to a previous version). And updating the Odoo modules, which means synchronizing the data model and views from module files to database.
Which one is problematic?
Note that you don't necessarily have to update the Odoo source code, it can have side effects. If you have something working stick with it.
P.S. What's your name by the way? No signature and no name in From header... I don't know whom I'm writing to :-)

Thanks for the update. I have tried to update a test database using the provided CLI : $ ./odoo.py -d test -u all After a long run I ended up with exactly the same module as I had. So I was not able to update to a new release of the website-builder which was the initial reason of my update needs (because I bought a theme that can't be uploaded using the 220.127.116.11 version of the builder that I have - at least this is what I was told). Any clue ? Maybe there is a place to specify where and how It is supposed to update ? Thanks a lot for your precious help.
