Should use the tag "public" or "plexpass" and not latest if I wish to have updates on restarting the container.
More details; https://github.com/plexinc/pms-docker#tags (read it carefully unlike I did at first.)
If I remove and reinstall I get the previous version. If I add the ":latest" tag to the repository I still just get the previous version. Why am I not getting the latest version?
This is exactly what I've experiencing as well.
This is completely contrary to how docker containers are supposed to work! A docker container should not change the binaries within at all. Update is supposed to be done through removing the container and recreating it. As such, the
latest tag points to the most recent tagged version, which is the expected behavior. Simply restarting the container is not a removal of the container and recreation. As such this does not upgrade anything.
I do know that a docker container is a static snapshot with specific configurations and binaries within. The reason why I said expect is because I already suspected that you had communicated with linuxserver.io. The container which I used, which was a snapshot from them from around Christmas, worked that like that and I expected about the same behaviour from the ":latest" tag as well.
Now, some have wanted the upgrade behavior within the container so we have the public and plexpass tags which blatantly violate the docker container's expected behavior and perform upgrading of the binaries within.
I should've read that more carefully.
I'd still like to add that I removed the entire downloaded docker image to verify how your image worked; ergo I had to update the image as well for the PMS update, which is within the expected behaviour of Docker.
This however, does not, as stated by taddeusz, work. (Which is a subject which I can agree on is not something that should be discussed in this topic due to the name of and nature of this topic.)
Anyhow, as stated above, I should've read the whole read.me more carefully.
Thanks for your assistance, patience and above all, quick replies.
