Upgrade Server from Administration section

Many newer web based applications allow for upgrading via the web UI. Since ScreenConnect already checks for newer versions when on the Admin Status page, you should also have a button to Download and then Install newer versions when available.

It makes it easier and save steps for system admins vs logging into the server console, downloading the new version of ScreenConnect, and then running through the installation. Allowing for ScreenConnect's administration/upgrades to be done directly through the web interface.

See PRTG Network Monitor for a great example of easy server upgrades via the web UI.

Here's a video example of PRTG's Auto-Update functionality:

Most paid for software has this basic functionality as one press or schedule automatic upgrades, however, they also need better update checking. 

I'm running the linux version and it says:
Your Version:20.1.27036.7360
Latest Version:20.3.28091.7419
Latest Eligible Version:20.5.28406.7438

However, this is false, I'm on the latest version for Linux. The aforementioned is only available for Windows installations currently.  With that said, I feel like I'm using community supported open source software but paying for it.
