    Restart required to update plugins... but which plugins?

    Hello.

    When I navigate to the Plugins page a pop up tells me:

    "Settings
    Changes will take place at the next application restart. Please click here to restart the server now."

    How can I tell which plugins require updating? I know it is listed somewhere as I saw it once, but I have just looked all thorough both Material Skin (the one I prefer) and Default and can find no mention of them anywhere. I've also been through all the forums posts mentioning it, but still no help.

    As the popup appears only when I navigate to the plugins page I assume it is a/some plugins that need updating, not LMS itself?
    I have this version:
    Logitech Media Server Version: 8.2.0 - 1627922070 @ Tue Aug 3 11:28:42 WEDT 2021
    And it's set to automatically check for update and download them.

    Thanks very much for any help.
    Take care of your tongue. It is in a wet place and can easily slip.

    Kitchen/outside: Chromecast audio, Azatom iBigBoy 2 (500W)
    And... SB+, radios & tons of Chromecasts... all run from LMS and controlled via Material Skin on any nearby device and a couple of Touchs.

    then go to the plugins page and the candidate plugins are at the top of the list...

    Ahah. Missed your post Mr Van. And indeed there it is. Thanks.

    Two more questions then.

    Why does it not appear for me in the plugins page (Default Skin)?
    And does it show anywhere in Material Skin?

    The plugin updated at top of Plugins tabs will only appear once the plugins have been downloaded.
    Any messages in server.log indicating failure to download updates or other plugin manager issues ?

    In Material Skin I think an icon changes coulour, from green to red (or t'other way round)

    Try setting plugins NOT to update automatically. You will still be prompted to update when required and then you will see which ones are being updated.

    If you ever figure out which one and where it is please let me know! :-)

    Thanks.
