Figma making me update instances individually instead of pulling all library updates

When I make library updates, I not longer get the toast notifying me there are updates in files using the library. I have to discover them one by one and update each instance manually. Not sure why this changed, but it’s very time consuming and dangerous when I can’t rely on prototypes, etc. having the latest updates to components.

UPDATE: now it seems to not be pushing updates at all. I’ve already tried repairing all component connections via the Quick Actions

Hey @Mollie ,
Thanks for flagging this, this looks buggy!
Can you confirm if have you been able to publish successfully in the past? If this issue has arisen suddenly, there might be a problem.
Library issues are usually specific to the library itself, so we’d need to look at the files/libraries themselves to get an idea of what we’d recommend (or find any bugs that are hiding).
Here is a reminder with our guide on how publish a library.

I’d recommend you to reach out directly to the support team with a copy of your file: here
Please make sure you use the email associated with your Figma account, include a screen recording of this not working, links to the file in question, and share access with support-share@figma.com. Thank you!

Hey Celine, yes it was working before. If I do OPT + CMD + O and go to the “update all” tab I can manually pull all the library updates now. A colleague recommended this thankfully.
Just don’t get the toast notifying of updates with CTA to update all.

I’m unable to share the file due to confidentiality unfortunately.
