Update from 7.x to 8.4.7

Hey :slight_smile:

I want to update my Grafana from version 7.x to 8.4.7
It’s not a docker container and work with influxdb
I hope i get the new version with apt-get update/upgrade
but it’s only the repository update without grafana

ok, i had read the installation guide:

sudo apt-get install -y adduser libfontconfig1
wget https://dl.grafana.com/enterprise/release/grafana-enterprise_8.4.7_amd64.deb
sudo dpkg -i grafana-enterprise_8.4.7_amd64.deb

It’s installed the new version over the old version
I get this information from terminal

### NOT starting on installation, please execute the following statements to configure grafana to start automatically using systemd
 sudo /bin/systemctl daemon-reload
 sudo /bin/systemctl enable grafana-server
### You can start grafana-server by executing
 sudo /bin/systemctl start grafana-server
Processing triggers for systemd (241-7~deb10u8) ...

Ok it’s look fine for me, but now, the server doesn’t start:

Grafana server is running with elevated privileges. This is not recommended
Grafana-server Init Failed: Could not find config defaults, make sure homepath command line parameter is set or working directory is homepath

Is my way the right way to update grafana?
How i can update grafana with apt update/upgrade for the future?

best wishes
