I've been using Plex for a while and when I first started there was no official repository to pull from and the 3rd party (not Ubuntu or Plex) PPAs were badly maintained. So I simply used
dpkg to do a manual install of the official
Now there is an official repository, I'd like to add it so that Plex will update with the rest of the system using
apt. I saw this answer, but it's talking about going the other way; manual install over an
apt installed package. I'd like some confirmation that this would work with
apt over manual before I screw something up and have to uninstall/reinstall/reconfigure my media server. I'm pretty sure it will be fine since I'm get the
.deb either way, but I just want to be sure.
Also, this repository is only for public releases, meaning I won't get early access as a Plex Pass user. This is normally fine, but if a new feature comes out that I want to try, could I then manually install and hold back
apt as well? Can I switch back and forth between an
apt install and a
dpkg install and be sure that they will update the same package? What are the potential problems with doing this?
