[Solved] After KiCad updates: not existent updates in the Plugin Manager

Update is probably in another repository you have. Switch to installed tab, it’s easier to see there.

but normally when an update is available, the button “update” becomes active.
As I show in the animated GIF, it’s not activated.

EDIT: following your suggestion up that tab: the “update” button was active and i finally got this to update


Thank you for the hint

Because that button is for plugins that are shown. If update is in another repository you have to switch repository and it will become active.

yes … I updated my previous message. As I said: thank you a lot for the hint :slight_smile:

Again we are back with the same issue … KiCAD 7.0.6

but there is nothing to update

The updates are for packages that are either in another repo or in another tab of the repo.

And you will be able to update all installed packages at once.
