nextstrain update

Updates a Nextstrain runtime to the latest available version, if any.

The default runtime (docker) is updated when this command is run without arguments. Provide a runtime name as an argument to update a specific runtime instead.

Only two runtimes currently support updates: Docker and Conda. Both may take several minutes as new software versions are downloaded.

This command also checks for newer versions of the Nextstrain CLI (the nextstrain program) itself and will suggest upgrade instructions if an upgrade is available.

usage: nextstrain update [-h] [<runtime>]

Positional Arguments


The Nextstrain build environment (aka Nextstrain runtime) to check. One of {docker, conda, ambient, aws-batch}. (default: docker)

Default: <module ‘nextstrain.cli.runner.docker’ from ‘/home/docs/checkouts/’>
