    Hi,

    so, I've got an Airport Express that is simply used as an AP, connect to a switch next to my router.
    I started getting Airport Utility popping up, telling me there's an update.
    I can click on the yellow button where I get a menu that would supposedly let me click on an item to actually update it - except I can't.

    What am I supposed to do?
    I have no problems with the unit, actually - probably because it doesn't do much and internet access is handled by a very stable pfSense ALIX bought something like seven and a half years ago (supported with updates until very recently)....

    So, I wonder if I should just click on "ignore" (which seems to be possible, in contrast).

    It should be in the Advanced sub-menu under the Information for the device in your network map diagram in Airport Utility.

    I've attached a picture.
    The little menu I get when I click on the text next to the orange button.
    I can only click on "Ignore" - everything else is unclickable.
    Or where am I supposed to click?

    So, as it happens, I was finally able to update my Airport Express from my iPhone via Apple's iOS Airport Utility App.
