Flagging Out of Date:

This package is the non-plexpass package, it gets updated less frequently. Be sure to flag the right package. You can find the plexpass version at

Current Issues:

The plex user's home directory needs to be changed, but likely can't if Plex Media Server was running when you upgrade. The package will tell you what to do, but of course that is easy to miss. The soluiton is to run sudo systemctl stop plexmediaserver ; sudo usermod -d /usr/lib/plexmediaserver plex ; sudo systemctl start plexmediaserver.

Hrm ? Can you check your ? sed -i 's/\.\/Plex/${SCRIPTPATH}\/Plex/' is supposed to fix exactly that
