Self-hosted not updating?

I have my self-hosted instance running in docker a couple of months now and I really like it!

Today I logged into vault.bitwarden.com and realised, that the design looks kinda different. Turns out my instance is running on 1.27.0! I had setup cron with this. So I cheked what happens when I execute those commands:

Couldn’t find anything in this forum or in the logs…

Is this what should happen? How do I update properly?

Thx for any help!

Looks like your update command didn’t actually do anything. You should see it pulling down the new images from DockerHub.

Yeah thats what I thought. Is there a way to actually update?

Ooooh wow. Just solved it: run as root. Could have tried that before. Maybe the script could give a prompt when there is a permission problem?

If you had to run it as root perhaps you had run it as root previously which left some files owned improperly? We run our self hosted updates as the user it was installed under and it continues to work.
