Unable to update

CaburCabur Posts: 2Members, Plex Pass Plex Pass

Currently I'm running version 1.8.4.4249 and have been trying up to update for several days. In the past I have had updates fail and It would give me an option of "Please update manually". When trying to update to 1.9.4.4325, it fails like before but the manual update simply flashes on the screen and and it returns to "Download updates".

1) Does anyone know where the downloaded update file is kept?
2) Can/Should I manually run the update from said file?
3) is there any reason I shouldn't?

    Just download the most recent update file manually from the DOWNLOADS link above.
    Then quit Plex server using its tray icon and start the downloaded installation file.

    Thanks for the suggestion!!
    Would you happen to know why updating inside plex would fail? :)
    1st world problem, but it would be kinda annoying to have to do this on every update

    It definitely doesn't happen every update. I seem to remember there was an issue with your current server version which affects updating.
