issues](https://tails.boum.org/support/known_issues/index.en.html).

# Get Tails 3.6.2

* To install, follow our [installation instructions](https://tails.boum.org/install/index.en.html).

* To upgrade, automatic upgrades are available from 3.6 and 3.6.1 to 3.6.2.

If you cannot do an automatic upgrade or if you fail to start after an
automatic upgrade, please try to do a [manual
upgrade](https://tails.boum.org/upgrade/index.en.html).

If you are doing a manual upgrade from Tails 3.2, 3.3, 3.4, or 3.5, it is only
possible to select an ISO image when running Tails in English. For other
languages, the file chooser button remains inactive:

* Restart Tails in English.

* Start Tails Installer in English from the command line:

LANG=en_US tails-installer

* [Download Tails 3.6.2.](https://tails.boum.org/install/download/index.en.html)
