Upgrading to Plex Media Server on Freenas



I keep getting the annoying update banner in the Plex UI that there is a Plex Media Server update available to In the past I have logged into my Freenas box, stopped the server and run the command:

pkg update && pkg upgrade multimedia/plexmediaserver

That has always worked, however when I do that now it says there are no updates available. Does Plex or Freenas need to update a repository correctly for this to work? Any help is appreciated.


what version of FreeNAS are you on? What's the output when you run pkg -vv in the jail?

@ahughes03 Current server Version

FreeNAS version? ("uname -a" in shell)
