ee cli update

Update EE to the latest release.

Default behavior is to check the releases API for the newest stable version, and prompt if one is available.

Use --stable to install or reinstall the latest stable version.

Use --nightly to install the latest built version of the develop branch. While not recommended for production, nightly contains the latest and greatest, and should be stable enough for development and staging environments.


: Update to the latest stable release.

: Update to the latest built version of the develop branch. Potentially unstable.

: Do not prompt for confirmation.
