    I'm trying to update my masternode following the guide at atlassian.

    The problem beginns at Install sentinel agent on masternode on step 7:

    at this point, running

    venv/bin/python bin/sentinel.py

    should return nothing but silence. This is how you know it's working.
    Instead I get:

    Invalid Masternode Status, cannot continue.​

    "dash-cli masternode debug" also indicates a problem:

    Not capable masternode: Invalid protocol version​

    This is my version:

    "version": 120100,
    "protocolversion": 70206,

    Anyone know what the problem might be? Tips & Tricks?

    Try using "start-alias" with whatever alias you set in masternode.conf, ie. "dash-cli masternode start-alias mn1". The error you're getting is from the client seeing the old start commands for your previous client on the network, the "start-alias" command clears them. For normal restarts use "start missing".

    Thank you, it worked.

    One notice, the command "masternode start-missing <yourwalletpassphrase>" didn't work:

    Error: Please enter the wallet passphrase with walletpassphrase first. (code -13)​

    But I unlocked the wallet under settings instead and got it running.

    Congrats :) There's also a new masternodes tab in the gui wallet, it's enabled from the options menu.
