@pitaj Prior to running ./nodebb upgrade I always do apt-get-update apt-get-upgrade so the server is already fully updated.
If there is something else that NodeBB requires then it should be part of the nodebb upgrade command.
This plugin not working https://github.com/Insiderto/nodebb-plugin-custom-homepage#readme
Tommy Vercetti, is that you? I'm actually literally installing Vice City right now, what are the odds.
Anyway -- custom homepage is deprecated, use custom pages plugin instead, create the page you want, and then set it as homepage in the homepage settings in the ACP.
There's a non-zero chance custom pages doesn't work in latest master, but should be fine in 1.10.2.
