How to upgrade the DigitalOcean Rocket.Chat droplet to 3.0.2

Install the droplet as usual (if you’re already using it, that’s ok too).

Upgrade the update tool:

sudo rocketchatctl upgrade-rocketchatctl

Upgrade Rocket.Chat:

sudo rocketchatctl update

The server is broken, doesn’t start, because it requires Nodejs 12.x Install it:

sudo apt-get -y update && sudo apt-get install -y curl && curl -sL | sudo bash -
sudo apt-get install -y nodejs

Change the path to new nodejs in the service config:

sudo nano /lib/systemd/system/rocketchat.service

In the line beginning with “ExecStart=” replace “/usr/local/bin/node” with “/usr/bin/node”

Reload the service and start the server:

sudo systemctl daemon-reload
sudo systemctl restart rocketchat.service

Check that it’s running:

sudo systemctl status rocketchat.service

The same problem here. Has anyone found a solution?

Same happening to me. Any news by chance?
