[SOLVED] Updating droppy


I’m trying to update droppy but the update command isn’t doing anything. I have version 10.2.4 installed and the current release version is 11.0.8 ( and

$ droppy --version
$ sudo npm update -g --production droppy
$ droppy --version

Any idea what am I doing wrong?

All of this is running on a Centos 7 box with node.js version v10.15.3.

Because it is a major version change, npm does not think it is an update. This catches me out too.


sudo npm install -g --production droppy@latest

Many thanks! Worked perfectly!
