To arrange an update to the latest machine software, contact firstname.lastname@example.org. We can remotely push update packages to the machine upon your request.
Alternatively, you may manually deploy the update package. We recommend this only to advanced users.
Please note that machine updates are not always compatible with your server version, and may need to be done in parallel with a server software update. Thus, it's advisable to contact our support team to collect info on your current configuration and coordinate the appropriate updates.
