June 26 Plugins Update

Another batch of plugins has been updated to their latest versions. There weren’t any security advisories in this batch, just version updates. The latest versions should appear in Plugins ⇾ Available and existing plugin installations can be updated to the new versions using the instructions below.

Before updating a plugin, review its Release Notes in the table below to determine if the update will impact your configuration. Then, determine the jail_name for the plugin:  go to Plugins ⇾ Installed and note the name of the plugin in the Jails column.

To update the plugin, type this command, replacing jail_name with the actual name shown in Plugins ⇾ Installed:

iocage update jail_name

Note that you will need to restart the plugin once the update is finished.

It is recommended to make a snapshot of your current plugin version before updating. Detailed instructions for creating a plugins snapshot and rolling back to a previous snapshot are available in this post.

    When I want to update my Plex Jail via the command “iocage update jail_name” the message “Snapshot already exists!” appears. What can I do about that?

      That typically indicates that an update (possibly an incomplete one) already occurred. If you go into Storage -> Snapshot Tasks you should see a snapshot with the words “plex” and “update” in the name. Delete that snapshot and try the update again.

          Anything in /var/log/messages when you try? Does it successfully start? What sort of error do you get when you try to connect? Which Plex version did you update from?

            I cant see anything special in the log files. It just says that the update successfully finished.

            I cant get a connection to the Plex Server in the Browser and anywhere else. When I try to ping the IP Adress it runs into a time limit error.

            I updated from 1.15.3.858 and I am using the Plex Pass Channel.

    Same issue with updating Plex. Took a snapshot. Shutdown the Jail. Ran iocage update plex. The install states it was successful. I start the jail back up. I can ping the jail. When I try to reach the web management interface on this address: http://192.168.0.20:32400/web/index.html# it is unreachable.

    Just out of curiosity does the iocage update command update the plexpass version or just regular plex. I have the plexpass version.

      It updates whatever was running in the jail. For example, I tested today for both a Plex instance and a Plexpass instance. If this remains an issue for you, please create a report at bugs.ixsystems.com so we can investigate what is happening with your particular configuration.
