Plex plugin update for FreeNAS 9.10.2-U6?

First, I apologize to everyone for "living in the stone age." Things ain't been broke, so I've had no reason to fix them. But something just came up:

Since the automatic update of the Plex plugin for FreeNAS (9.10.2-U6) stopped working a few years ago, I've been successfully using the manual process I found in this forum, issuing these commands in a shell in the jail:

fetch -o PMS_Updater.sh https://raw.githubusercontent.com/mstinaff/PMS_Updater/master/PMS_Updater.sh

chmod 755 PMS_Updater.sh

./PMS_Updater.sh -vv -a



Yesterday I saw an alert for a new Plex version, but for the first time I got errors running the update:

root@plexmediaserver_1:/ # ./PMS_Updater.sh -vv -a

sed: /Plex Media Server/Preferences.xml: No such file or directory
Shared object "libc++.so.1" not found, required by "Plex Media Server"
Using URL https://plex.tv/api/downloads/5.json
Searching https://plex.tv/api/downloads/5.json for the FreeBSD download URL ....

fetch: -: Broken pipe
Could not find a FreeBSD download link on page https://plex.tv/api/downloads/5.j

root@plexmediaserver_1:/ #



My question - is there an easy fix here? Or is it hopeless to try to maintain a Plex Media Server on FreeNAS 9?

warden is deprecated. completely. so yes, hopeless. you need to upgrade to 11.x, and use iocage jails to get any reliable updates, since, again, warden is deprecated.
