According to https://support.plex.tv/articles/235974187-enable-repository-updating-for-supported-linux-server-distributions/ and a few other sitesI should do a
sudo apt install apt-transport-https echo deb https://downloads.plex.tv/repo/deb public main | sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/plexmediaserver.list
curl https://downloads.plex.tv/plex-keys/PlexSign.key | sudo apt-key add -
But I get this warning:
Warning: apt-key is deprecated. Manage keyring files in trusted.gpg.d instead (see apt-key(8)). gpg: no valid OpenPGP data found.
I've asked about this in the official Plex forum, but no answers. Instead I downloaded the .deb package from their website, copied it to the RPI on an external drive attached via SMB, then ran a
sudo dpkg -i plexmediaserver_126.96.36.19919-c43dc0277_arm64.deb
Everything works fine, aparently. My question is this:
When using the first method, I should install plex with
sudo apt install plexmediaserver
, meaning that in the future, when I run a sudo apt upgrade, also the Plex software will be updated. But with the method I used, this is not an option. There is an option in the server software, to do an update. I have no idea how this method works. But as Plex releases new updates fairly often, I just want to make sure I can update the software this way.
And that's my question. I'm new to Linux.
