It sounds like you’re trying to update from a pre-release, which would have a -pr after it. We typically recommend only deploying the pre-release to a testing/staging server.
If you manually update this time, you can delete the /..final-beta version afterwards and going forward the auto updates should work.
One big difference between .30.7 and the newer versions is older/inactive events do not automatically display in the event overview. The newer versions have a status filter that you can set to display the older events, which is why you might not have seen the events after you updated.
