I am trying to redeploy Plex after updating to 8.1 from 7.7.7. It is hanging on the step below, and doesnt move:

TASK [Setting ownership on appdata] ********************************************

Sunday 20 January 2019 21:56:37 -0500 (0:00:00.024) 0:00:05.378 ********

Actually the solution is simple, there seems to be a problem with settings the permissions on the appdata folder after upgrade.

Workaround is the following:

1. cd /opt/appdata
2. sudo mv plex plex2
3. sudo plexguide (reinstall plex, it will work this time)
4. Once installed go to portainer and stop plex
5. go to back to appdata and sudo rm -rf plex
6. sudo mv plex2 plex
7. start plex container in portainer

This will bypass the setting permissions issue and retain all your plex data.
