When updating Plucky, do not uninstall your existing Plucky installation first. If you do, you will lose your accumulated Plucky settings. Instead, just install right on top of it.

Important note on Plucky versions prior to 1.13.25

When updating from a Plucky version older than 1.13.25, it is possible (maybe a 1% chance) that the update process will terminate with a half-baked Plucky installation that may block the Internet completely. The root cause is a race condition. In light of this:

  1. Invoke pluck sync in a terminal to save your configurations to https://u.pluckeye.net/ just in case something goes wrong.

  2. Manually download the Plucky installer from https://getplucky.net/ . If getplucky.net is not allowed, invoke: pluck + allow getplucky.net and pluck expedite getplucky so you can download the installer ASAP.

  3. Close all programs to decrease the likelihood of the update bug mentioned above.

  4. Wait 10 seconds and cross your fingers for luck.

  5. Run the Plucky installer.

  6. If you encounter a problem, text +1 (909) 758-6028 for assistance.
