DESCRIPTION

  xen-update-image is a simple script which allows you to update
 a Xen image of Debian which has been created with xen-create-image.
  It does this by mounting the image inside a temporary directory
 then running:
      apt-get update
      apt-get upgrade
  NOTE If the image is already running within Xen this will cause
 corruption otherwise it will allow you to update your image without
 booting it.

EXAMPLES

  The following assumes there are two images which are not currently
 running.  The images are called 'test.my.flat', and 'x11.my.flat'.
  Updating both images can be accomplished by executing:
     xen-update-images --dir=/home/xen test.my.flat x11.my.flat
