  1. Hello,

    I’ve used your YouTube video, “Update Plex Media Server on Freenas” successfully in the past to keep my Plex Server up to date on my FreeNAS 11.1 server several times in the past couple of years. When I tried to update Plex today, however, the PMS_Updater.sh script is failing (see screen notes below). Has something changed on the Plex side so that your script is no longer working? Any thoughts you have on how to correct this issue would be appreciated.
