I get the following error when trying to upgrade to 0.59.2

  Found existing installation: homeassistant 0.59.1
    Uninstalling homeassistant-0.59.1:

Any ideas what I can do about it?

You just installed under the pi user?

Nope virtual env

Under the pi user, or do you have a homeassistant user?

Homeassistant user …

sudo su -s /bin/bash homeassistant
source /home/pi/homeassistant/bin/activate
pip3 install --upgrade homeassistant

OK, not sure how you’ve ended up with your files under the pi user then, but this should fix it:

From pi user…

sudo chown -R homeassistant:homeassistant /home/pi/homeassistant 

Just to clarify, you’re sure your installation isn’t at /home/homeassistant (no pi in the middle)?

That worked:) many thanks :smiley:
Probably due to the slightly confusing installation instructions :stuck_out_tongue:

No worries :slight_smile:
