    What can I do if there's no update available?

    Could you specify which version is currently installed?

    Generally, please try to start Plesk Installer with the parameter --all-versions, for example:

    "%plesk_bin%"\ai.exe --console --all-versions

    Thanks Ivan for your reply.

    What if, instead of using command line, I'd like to use Plesk Updates option?

    @Alessandro, this option is available only in CLI version of Plesk installer. If you cannot see the desired version for the upgrade, it may mean that your OS does not meet all requirements.

    Running /usr/local/psa/admin/bin/autoinstaller says that it should only be ran on clean install servers and that I should backup my data, so I am not sure I should proceed:

    ------ IMPORTANT ------

    * New installation of product(s) should be performed on clean servers only.

    * Before upgrading Plesk, be sure to back up your data.

    * By using this Wizard you agree to the terms and conditions described at and those of the Plesk End User
    License Agreement.

    Available actions:
    (F) Go forward
    (Q) Cancel installation

    Hi @adrianTNT!

    In case you are updating Plesk, the warning about clean server may be ignored, this is for new installations only.

    As for backup, it is a general recommendation in case the update will fail (usually the process goes fine). You may make a server snapshot or backup Plesk domains.
