      Description

      It's not possible to update plugins by grafana-toolkit

      [root@c3a5b7579c4e opt]# grafana-cli plugins update yesoreyeram-boomtable-panel
      
      Error: ✗ Could not find dist/plugin.json or plugin.json on  yesoreyeram-boomtable-panel in /var/lib/grafana/plugins
      
      NAME:
         Grafana cli plugins update - update <plugin id>
      
      USAGE:
         Grafana cli plugins update [arguments...]
      [root@c3a5b7579c4e opt]# 
      
      

      But it can be done manually by using .zip files of plugins.
      If it's not possible to fix grafana-toolkit updating method then it's required to prepare a bolgpost with step-by-step instruction to process by .zip files method.
      Here is the instruction of updating clickhouse plugin by .zip files method:

      - yum -y install wget
      - cd /var/lib/grafana/plugins/
      - wget https://github.com/Vertamedia/clickhouse-grafana/archive/1.9.5.zip
      - unzip 1.9.5.zip
      - rm -rf Vertamedia-clickhouse-grafana-995b21b
      - supervisorctl restart grafana
