Upgrading FROM 4.0.8 on Ubuntu 18.04 doesn't work (python version)

I am running appdaemon version 4.0.8 on Ubuntu 18.04 that was installed a while back. Today when trying to upgrade, I noticed that it does not go beyond what I have so I read the breaking changes and it appears that support for my python version was dropped.

python3 --version
Python 3.6.9

How should I go about upgrading when I already have python 3.9 installed in my system?

python3.9 --version
Python 3.9.10

appdaemon -v
appdaemon 4.0.8

Thank you.

Solved! Removed the old version and reinstalled it under venv with python3.9 :wink:

As an alternative, you can look into running appdaemon in a docker container to avoid future issues with python versions and other dependencies.
