Netdata agent will not update to newest nightly version

Attempting to update my Ubuntu 20.04LTS to the latest nightly. According to the ‘Update now’ I’m running v1.26.0-242-nightly and the latest is v1.26.0-247-nightly however running

OK

netdata -V
netdata v1.26.0-242-nightly

Running the update script again shows

OK

And shouldn’t the updater script that is called by ‘netdata-updater’ in /etc/cron.daily and located in /usr/libexec/netdata automatically run daily and update? It’s set to run daily at 06.25.

As an aside trying to add a tag to this post with ‘Support’ ‘Netdata Agent’ is impossible.

After multiple runs of bash <(curl -Ss https://my-netdata.io/kickstart.sh) the Agent finally updated to the latest version.
