Here’s how to update Plex Media Server on a server running Ubuntu.

Make sure you replace the URLs and packages with the latest release.

  • Find the URL for the latest Plex Media Server package here.
  • SSH into your server. 
  • Download the latest package (replace filename with the latest), then install it:
wget https://downloads.plex.tv/plex-media-server/0.9.13.4.1192-9a47d21/plexmediaserver_0.9.12.4.1192-9a47d21_amd64.deb
sudo dpkg -i plexmediaserver_0.9.12.4.1192–9a47d21_amd64.deb

Following installation, remove the installer file with this command:

rm plexmediaserver_0.9.12.4.1192–9a47d21_amd64.deb

Remember that you don’t have to type the entire filename, just the first few letters and press <tab> to complete it.
