I typed the upgrade commands, and still have KStars 3.5.5. I started with the stable Astroberry release, which is 2.0.4. Let me go over to the astroberry site, see what's the deal there. Maybe I need a development release.

Anyway, not a big deal: at least in 3.5.5 an older problem has been fixed where the scope would keep turning if I would let Ekos do the automatic turning (could be an LX200 OnStep driver issue, not sure). So, I can now live without the manual settings and upgrade sometime later. Having a stable release is worth something.
