“How do I update?”
There is currently no way to update from earlier OctoPi versions to a new version of that image. It’s not necessary though - a new image basically means that if you have to setup a new instance you’ll start at a newer version of everything bundled with the image. Anything included on the image however can also be kept up to date without having to reflash. OctoPrint will have prompted you to update itself and will continue to do so, and most of the image itself can be kept up to date like every other Raspbian image.
So no need to reflash!
If you want to however, make sure you backup anything under
~pi/.octoprint on your current instance and also
make a list of your installed plugins so that you can restore your data on your new one. I might look into a way
to automate this too.
