I updated KiCAD to 7.0.5 this morning
In Plugin Manager, I go this:
- I have an highlight: there should be a plugin to be updated
- When searched: there is not any one to be updated
Application: KiCad x64 on x64
Version: 7.0.5, release build
libcurl/7.88.1-DEV Schannel zlib/1.2.13
Platform: Windows 11 (build 22000), 64-bit edition, 64 bit, Little endian, wxMSW
Date: May 27 2023 02:48:13
wxWidgets: 3.2.2 (wchar_t,wx containers)
Compiler: Visual C++ 1936 without C++ ABI
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
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.
