I am currently running FPP 3.5.4 and want to install the latest install FPP 6.1. Could there be possible problems updating from a really old version of FPP to FPP 6.1? What I have is running fine, so I don't want to mess it up if there are any special steps I need to follow.

No, but it would take probably 5 times as long as it would take to re-image.

If you are concerned, get a second SD card (it is always best to have backups on hand, SD cards do wear out!) that way you can always put the old card back in if you need to see what you had before. Before you start the process, take screenshots of your Network settings and if you are running any plugins, take note of those. Just about everything else can be restored from xLights.
If to err is human, I am more human than most people.

Appreciate the reply guys! Sounds like a re-image with a backup is the way to go. I will make a backup of my current system, note my current settings, and give it a shot.
