Design draft: installation and auto-update on Linux

Hi all!

We are working on the design of the installation and auto-update processes on Linux. You can find a draft here: https://github.com/storj/storj/pull/3463

It discusses the choice of the packaging system. We plan to use native packaging systems (i.e. deb and rpm formats).
Let us know if you have any thoughts on that!

I think package repository it will be rigth way (for .deb .rpm) Autoupdater can be just simple command in cron like “yum update storagenode” or apt “update storagenode” that run every 6 hour ± randomization.
Also nice to have “how to build it from source” small documentation for other distros.

How will this offer a better experience than using docker? It needs to be at least as simple to setup as using docker. Hopefully a simple one line command to install and a text config file to update.

You can still use docker
