nextstrain update

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

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.

Three runtimes currently support updates: Docker, Conda, and Singularity. Updates 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.

positional arguments


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