I have a home built PC media server that a friend set up for me. I am technical but not in world of FreeNas. I need to update the Server but have some problems first – any suggestions how I can talk to someone to help – Currently I am running FreeNAS 9.3 and need to update system to the 11.1-U5. Need help to get this done . Then I can use some direction on updating latest Plex

Couple things. First, you're a couple versions behind on FreeNAS. I would suggest updating the base system first before trying to tackle any other issues. Update to 9.10 and then after that is complete update to 11.1. DO NOT update to 11.2, it's a beta release even though it's listed as stable. Make sure you keep a copy of your config along the way at update each step in case things go sideways so you can recover.

Once your base system is up to date we need to get you off the plex plugin. A manual install in an iocage jail is the way forward for you. Read the resource linked here to create your iocage jail and follow the instructions on installing Plex. This will put you on a newer version Plex and it should also be easier to keep it up to date by running pkg upgrade.
