Hey Kool,
sorry to hear you are having problems. I could update n8n to 0.198.2 without any problems. Did you try a global uninstall/install?

npm uninstall n8n -g
npm install n8n -g

Be aware that we released version 0.199.0 with node canvas experience improvements.


After several tries it worked. Not sure why it at first was stuck in the last process.
