How to upgrade Mattermost 5.12.0 on Ubuntu 18.04 droplet

Forgive what may be a super easy question but I’m currently running the Mattermost 5.12.0 on Ubuntu 18.04 droplet. I’m getting a server update error telling me to upgrade to server version 5.19 or later. How do I do so within Digital Ocean?

  • Does it show an update available with the common:

    apt update

    If yes use

    apt full-upgrade

    That will upgrade everything, alternatively you can use

    apt upgrade {package name}

Thanks for helping. Using apt full-upgrade it went through the motions with the green bar on the console going through to 100%, but according to the droplet its still “Mattermost 5.12.0 on Ubuntu 18.04”. I’m also still getting the server out of date error when opening the app.

Also the highest available version on DigitalOcean seems to be Mattermost 5.16.3

Any other ideas? Thanks again!

There seems to be no way to upgrade a Mattermost Digital Ocean droplet. Is that the case?
