doctl kubernetes cluster upgrade <id|name> [flags]


Upgrades a Kubernetes cluster. By default, this upgrades the cluster to the latest available release, but you can also specify any version listed for your cluster by using doctl k8s get-upgrades.


The following example upgrades a cluster named example-cluster to version 1.28.2:

doctl kubernetes cluster upgrade example-cluster --version 1.28.2-do.0


Option Description
--help , -h Help for this command
--version The Kubernetes version to upgrade to. Use the doctl k8s get-upgrades <cluster> command for a list of available versions. The special value latest selects the most recent patch version for your cluster’s minor version. For example, if a cluster is on 1.12.1 and upgrades are available to 1.12.3 and 1.13.1, the latest flag upgrades the cluster to 1.12.3.
Default: latest
