No Update option for Unreal 5.03 to 5.1 by Epic games launcher

Hi guys, I`m a new user of Unreal engine and not so familiar with ways of update unreal engine.

I downloaded unreal 5.03 from epic games launcher previously and now would like to update it to 5.1 version. but there is no update button on unreal tab.

Do I need to download whole new unreal 5.1 and uninstall 5.03?

There’s never an update path, unless it’s going through a minor version change.

Hey @Oxide23! Welcome to the community!

Yeah, there’s not going to be an “Update” option as this is a full version change.

A good rule of thumb is when the tenths place digit changes, it’s an uninstall/new install scenario.

And when the hundredths/thousandths(rarely) changes, it’s an update to your current installation.

Hope that clears things up for you! :slight_smile:

Thank you for the explanation, now I know what to do next.
