Upload to the upload section of the FPP file manager.
If you did it right, it will appear as an option for the upgrade - I'm not in front of it, so I can't tell you exactly what it says.

You would need to download the appropriate .fppos file from github to use the online upgrade method NOT any file from the image zip file.  Also if upgrading to any of the FPP 6 versions, it is HIGHLY recommended (and in the manual) to update to the most recent version of 5.5 first.  As of today that would be 5.5-26.......

Brain fart.  You are correct, the fppos file is not zipped on the website...
So skip my first step...

Updated to 6.2 using the "Upgrade OS" method and all seemed to work fine.  Noticed an issue when trying to do a test pattern where it spat out an error message and when clicking on update an error message occurred also.  Decided to reboot the box and now it's dead.  Can't get any network connection (wired or wireless) to work in order to get back into the box.

I'm running FPP3.3 is there any danger in upgrading, don't want to break my show season just starting

I took advice here and installed on a new sd card all went well except I just noticed last night that channels that are set to wled are not working and typically The wled controller will tell me when it switches to E1.31 MODE and it not doing that so what am I missing?

OK i switched back to my old sd card went into FPP setup test to test WLED channels and all works fine so has to be a configuration issue with FPP 6.2 But the question is what?

Many people get along fine with the new version, but a few have issues to resolve after upgrading.  Honestly, if everything is working fine, I would probably leave it at this late stage.  With that said 3.3 is very old, and I would upgrade as soon as this season is over.

As JonD said, your version is really old and its a little close to most going live to do this.
If you decide to go forward, Please read the Install Notes!
Depending on the version you have, there are recommended methods of upgrading.
Some like 5.X require it to be upgraded to 5.5 Before going to 6.X
Read the notes and be sure...

Use a new SD card. If you have trouble, just go back to the old one.

I'm running 6.1.1 and trying to use the green upgrade button.  I'm getting the following error message:
Pulling in updates...
Can not access https://github.com/, unable to pull git updates

==========================================================================
Update Complete.

I can probably download it and reimage, but thought this would be easier.

I would suspect internet / DNS issues

So I can get to the internet.  My DNS host servers are set to 8.8.8.8 and 8.8.4.4.  thoughts?

I have had that message more times than I can remember.  It is always an internet issue of some kind.

I am in need of some serious help recovering my BBB.  My BBB was running 5.4 and was attempting to update to 6.2.  Last night I installed 5.5 successfully but when I powered my BBB on this morning it will no longer boot up.  Power LED comes on, and then just one status led will light.  I do have a Oled screen on my BBB but that doesn't power up either.  No wifi, no ethernet, nothing.  I've power cycled several times but same result.

Is there a way to recover the BBB?

Sounds like the SD card failed. 
If you replace the card, download and image it directly with 6.2.
Here is the link, go to the bottom where it says Assets and grab the one for BBB image

Dan Kulp told me the fppos file (BBB v6.2) is not for SD card images and they are for in place upgrades.  I've tried booting with and without the SD card.

Correct.  If you are trying to do a clean image upgrade (recommended), you need to image file (downloads as a .zip).  There is a link to it in the first post of this thread.
