Updating plugins with the ansible\elasticsearch playbook

How do you use the ansible\elasticsearch playbook to update the es_plugins? I did an update from 7.8 to 7.9 and it's not updating the plugin.

Hi @biggtimber,
Elasticsearch plugins should be reinstalled when Elasticsearch is updated.

es_plugins_reinstall should be set to true when Elasticsearch package install task changed:

If that's not the case, you can still force es_plugins_reinstall to true, however, I don't see any reason why it wouldn't be set to true automatically when Elasticsearch is upgraded.

Can you provide your Ansible playbook and logs so we can investigate?

hmm. I didnt' change that variable anywhere in my playbook, but I am doing other things in there that might be causing some failures. Let me break them out into seperate ones and mess with it some more. Thanks.
