has anyone updated their octoprint to the most recent version?
I know @Michael_Coley did, but only after yanking the SD card out, then burn a fresh OctoPi. At least one other person also reported successful upgrade but did not say how. The “dirty” version shipped with Ares stops automatic update. I once tried to hack the dirty version to fool updater, but did not succeed.
The new OctoPi image Ares released (see Nicola’s repo) will allow automatic update. But again, you probably need to yank SD card out.
