Running the trial app


long-time Heroku user here, totally new to I’m trying to run the hello-fly tutorial app using the steps in the README:

git clone

cd hello-fly

fly launch --now

That last command is where it goes awry:

$ fly launch --now

Hi @fullstackplus

This might be a bug in an earlier version of flyctl. Update flyctl:

fly version update

Then try launching again.

EDIT: Let us know if updating flyctl doesn’t solve this issue. :slight_smile:
