Update repositories

On this page you get an overview of all update repositories in the system. The update repository is the place where the firmware files are located.

You can add a new update repository and add update packages to the repository.

Currently, you can choose between two places from which updates can be obtained: A local repository (Directory) and the CURe server (Cure). CURe stands for central update repository server.
