Solved: 3 Days, 10 Hours, 43 Minutes ago Need help upgrading 1.821 to 1.822

Solved: 3 Days, 10 Hours, 43 Minutes ago Question 
Firstly im new here, and am just in the process of creating a forum.
I mistakenly installed 1.821 and want to upgrade to 1.822.
Its on a VPS running ubuntu at present.
AFAIK, all I have to do is extract the upload folder from the zip file and overwrite the folder in /var/www/mybb, is this correct?
I think the issue is im using the wrong command, as i suck at linux but am learning.

after extracting the zip archive for version 1.822 i did the following:

sudo cp -r -f Upload/ /var/www/mybb


I go to the install page and it still says mybb is already installed and only gives me the option to upgrade to my existing version 1.81

What is the proper command to merge the folder and overwrite all the files in my existing installation?
None of the guides tell me how to do this. It only tells me to replace all the files in the directory.


TIA

try using sudo cp -r -f Upload/* /var/www/mybb OR sudo rsync -av Upload/ /var/www/mybb/

Thanks, that worked.
I was also getting an error that it didnt have permission to access the pages, but I figured out what the error was, I needed to redo the chmod command to change permissions back on all the new files that were added to the folder.
