Update rocket chat when using snap?


I’ve been using snaps: https://docs.rocket.chat/installation/snaps to install rocket chat, so the official manual here doesn’t apply:

So how do I go about and update Rocket chat to the latest version?

Thanks a lot in advance.

Server Setup Information

  • Version of Rocket.Chat Server: 3.4.2
  • Operating System: Ubuntu 20.04 LTS
  • Deployment Method:
  • Number of Running Instances: 1
  • DB Replicaset Oplog:
  • NodeJS Version:
  • MongoDB Version:
  • Proxy:
  • Firewalls involved:

Any additional Information

You can use sudo snap refresh rocketchat-server, but I believe it’s still currently at 3.4.2. I’m not sure when it will be updated to 3.5.

Thank you very much @binarydad , for your reply and the information…

That is sort of strange though because in the official guide they say and recommend that snap is the official recommended method of installing Rocket Chat.

Is there no other way you can just run the update by just pointing to the correct directories or will that just break stuff because it is dependent on Snaps?

Kind regards


Snaps are one of our biggest install base. They are also auto updating. As a result we like to spend more time testing before releasing. Updated Snaps are usually released around the 15th of the month - around 2 weeks after a new release. This gives us time to look for issues so you don’t have to.

Ok thank you very much for the update which is very much appreciated.

Kind regards
