How to update ghost on droplet


I was able to install ghost droplet using a Youtube video but can not figure out how will I updated the theme updated or major Ghost version in the future.

I have seen the documentation on the Ghost website and tried it in terminal.

I keep getting the error “Run ghost update again within a folder where Ghost was installed with Ghost-CLI.”

Any help is appreciated

and run the

  1. ghost update
