How To Upgrade Vespa

This guide is for users upgrading from one version of Vespa to another.

If you're upgrading from a version < 0.9.1 to a version ≥ 0.9.1, you're moving from 32-bit to 64-bit Vespa which is a big change. In that case, ignore the instructions below. Instead, please read our overview of the change and then proceed to the installation instructions.

If you are upgrading from a version < 0.10.0 you need to make sure that wxPython has been upgraded to version 4.0.4 or higher, and matplotlib 2.2.3

Check Your Python

Download and run it with this command --

python 2

If your Python installation has all the necessary 64-bit dependencies you should see a message stating, "Everything looks good! You are ready to proceed with the Vespa upgrade." ... on to the next step!

Note. As of Vespa version 0.10.0 you may need to upgrade to newer versions of wxpython and matplotlib packages, and install lmfit and pypubsub packages. In Anaconda (or miniconda) you can do this at an Anaconda command prompt with these commands --

conda install wxpython==4.0.4 matplotlib==2.2.3

pip install lmfit pypubsub

Upgrade Vespa

Run this command --

pip install vespa-suite --upgrade
