How to update from biobakery_workflows v3.0.0-alpha.4 to v3.0.0-alpha.7?

I created a Google cloud VM with the available biobakery image. (See biobakery_basic · biobakery/biobakery Wiki · GitHub)

It comes with biobakery_workflows v3.0.0-alpha.4

I would like to update to biobakery_workflows v3.0.0-alpha.7 (dated 02-19-2021)

I’ve been looking everywhere but it seems I have to install it from scratch. Is that correct?

Please advise,


Hi Paty, The workflows, and all other biobakery python packages, are installed in our cloud image releases with pip. If you run $ pip install --upgrade biobakery_workflows it should install the latest version hosted on PyPI.

Thank you,

Hi Lauren,
I ran the command and it ran successfully but then when I try:
biobakery_workflows --version
it still returns:
biobakery_workflows v3.0.0-alpha.4

Any idea why?

Thanks for your help,
