1st. Enable display of hidden files and folders in LibreELEC

System > Settings > Appearance > File Lists > Show hidden files and directories

2nd. Have a USB Flash Drive with .tar file plugged into the Raspberry Pi and then go to "File Manager" to copy it into the ".update" folder

System > File Manager > storage > .update

then "Reboot" your Pi to auto start the update procedure.

or through a network?

Any clue would be appreciated.

No need to copy anything, do it by terminal, and let the RPI download it:

ssh [email protected] (or ssh [email protected]*)
cd .update

This requires a linux/osx machine, but since Microsoft finally has seen the light, you can use a Bash shell in Windows 10 (soon) to run above commands:

Many thanks for your patience and your comprehensive replies to my newbie question.
In the end I did it through the Raspberrian GUI file manager type of thing, but I had to change the permissions, from the command line. A good Linux exercise for me !
But I will also try your suggestions, just to learn.
Another little question (this should be easy):
Can I (should I) run LibreELEC from NOOBS ?
