Do not uninstall, just update
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.
Do not run
After the browser is restarted, if you can not connect to the Internet, do not run
pluck repair. Sometimes the update process takes longer than expected, and if
pluck repair is run while the update is occurring, you may inadvertently bork both the old and new Plucky installations, lose Internet, and need to manually update by:
using another computer to download the Plucky installer from https://getplucky.net/ ,
transferring the Plucky installer onto the borked machine, perhaps by using a thumb drive , and
running the Plucky installer on the borked machine.
It is hoped that the
pluck repair bug should be fixed in Plucky 1.15.11, but update bugs are hard bugs to completely irradicate.
Manually downloading an update
Modern Plucky can be download from https://getplucky.net/.
Note that you will need to restart Chrome after installing a new version.
Reboot Windows, macOS, or Linux
After updating, it is often a good idea to restart the computer.
