Upgrade manually from Emby 3.3.1.0

Hi guys,
 
because there seems no way of the new apt repository getting real. Now I want to manually update to the latest version. It is possible to directly update to 3.5.3.0 or do I have to make each step manually? Also is there a complete tutorial on how to do this? I am on Ubuntu 14.04 Server and have some experience with Linux. In other threads I only can find snippets of a tutorial mentioned in problem descriptions. So no real tutorial. Somebody has the required steps here?
 
My plan (But only a draft):
 
- Backup using plugin
- Backup /var/lib/emby-server
- Do apt-get purge emby-server
- Remove apt repository from sources.list
- Download latest *.deb from emby.media
- Install using dpkg
- Copy backup of /var/lib/emby-server to /var/lib/emby (I remember reading somewhere that this is the new directory)
 
Did I forget some steps or do you have suggestions/recommendations?
 
Sincerely,
hvt

This is all I do to upgrade to the latest version:

 

First, download latest package (obviously this is as of this posting):

wget https://github.com/MediaBrowser/Emby.Releases/releases/download/3.5.3.0/emby-server-deb_3.5.3.0_amd64.deb

Then to upgrade the server:

sudo dpkg -i emby-server-deb_3.5.3.0_amd64.deb

HI, yes this should be fine.

Are the database migrations automatically applied? Is there any kind of internal database which data will get lost when doing the purging emby-server?

What did you do about the sources.list? The link between the package and repository gets lost automatically? Or can I safely remove the apt repository after doing this?

You can remove the apt repository.

I tried it. Now there are 99% of the assets not loaded and I got a million file not found exceptions in the log. Did some paths changed and the files were not copied automatically?

 

EDIT: I solved the problem by creating a symlink with the command.

sudo ln -s /var/lib/emby /var/lib/emby-server

How can I change this permanently or is this a hardcoded path?

I would continue with your symlink for now and it should be fine. If you ever want to start fresh, then you can remove it. Thanks.
