How to upgrade Plex Media Server on Ubuntu

By: Kevin | March 30, 2015

Almost every time I need to upgrade my Plex Media Server I always forget the command and end up consulting the Google. So this post is for me,.. and hopefully help someone thats in the same boat as me.

  1. Go to
  2. Click on downloads -> Computer -> Linux
  3. I’m using Ubuntu on an old machine so I right click on 32-bit and copy link
  4. On your Ubuntu box paste the download link like so, wget This will download the update.
  5. Next run sudo dpkg -i plexmediaserver_WHATEVER-VERSION_i386.deb to install the update.
  6. Easy peasy, your done.

I like to reboot the machine after updating, just for good measure.
