1. Upgrading the package should be possible by booting the device,
visiting Plinth and triggering system-wide upgrade in software upgrades.
2. The chroot should be able to connect to network just like the rest of
the machine. But I suppose there is an issue with DNS resolution. Add
a temporary first line in /etc/resolv.conf as 'nameserver
<your-dns-server>' or 'nameserver 184.108.40.206' (warning: that one belongs to
3. If networking is not working for some reason, download the latest
pamabl package, copy it to chroot and after to go into chroot, do
