Upgrade through web gui is only partial

Upgrading through the web GUI appears to work but does not upgrade everything
The server is properly upgraded

but some files such as command line bin kept the old version


This problem is already old though I was not able to to date it fully
It was already referenced in

Good luck and thanks

I believe when a piece of Duplicati starts it checks the update folder to see if there’s a newer version that what’s install in the normal bin folder (or C:\Program Files\Duplicati 2\Duplicati.CommandLine.exe on Windows).

So I suspect the update is all working as designed, but there’s a bug in Duplicati.CommandLine.exe when called directly such that it doesn’t check for a newer version.

On Windows I can run "%userprofile%\AppData\Local\Duplicati\updates\\Duplicati.CommandLine.exe" and get the expected version. I’m not sure what the MacOS or Linux variant of that would be…

But that has me wondering, @kenkendk - if something cleans up the updates folder it’s effectively “un-updating” anything done via the GUI which could cause issues as things like database rewrites and parameter changes keep happening, right?
