Its Christmas morning and then this message appears:

This Emby Server needs to be updated. To download the latest version. 

Then it dumps you off of the server. 

Currently running:

  • Android: 3.1.73
  • Linux Server: 4.2.1.0

Its a present i suppose.

Hi, are you able to update to a newer version of Emby Server? 4.5.4 is the latest.

Yep, sorry, didn't realise how old the version I was running was (Aug 2019). I'll treat myself and update to the latest.

Have a good Christmas Luke.

Is it possible to force it if upgrade is not possible? I only have 4.2.1.0_1 available as a FreeNas Plugin.Emby still works from my Sheild Pro but I cannot access anything from my Android app.

This is how to manually update. It's actually quite simple. If you're all the way back on 4.2.1 I'd recommend checking the dependencies as well since I'm sure there's been a few new ones. If it were me, I'd just force re-install all dependencies, easier that way than checking them one at a time.

See the list of dependencies here.

So I'd do it like this:

service emby-server stop
pkg update
pkg upgrade
pkg install -f mono libass fontconfig freetype2 fribidi gnutls iconv opus sqlite3 libtheora libva libvpx libvorbis webp libx264 x265 dav1d libzvbi libraw ImageMagick6
pkg add -f https://github.com/MediaBrowser/Emby.Releases/releases/download/4.5.4.0/emby-server-freebsd11_4.5.4.0_amd64.txz
service emby-server start

Any time there's a new update, you can grab the link from the github here:
