Migrate user home directories on image update
Open, Requires assessmentPublicBUG

Description

Right now people lose all their command history and custom configs when VyOS is updated. That data is not actually lost, but you need to know some secrets of the internals to recover it—the path is anything but obvious.

Ideally we should use a separate /home, but for now, we can migrate that data to the new image at least.
