If you're using the Emulator via the Firebase CLI, you can
disregard this message.

If you're upgrading @google-cloud/functions-emulator, these
are the recommended upgrade steps:

1. Stop the currently running emulator, if any:

functions stop

2. Uninstall the current emulator, if any:

npm uninstall -g @google-cloud/functions-emulator

3. Install the new version of the emulator:

npm install -g @google-cloud/functions-emulator

If you have trouble after upgrading, try deleting the config
directory found in:


Then restart the emulator. You can also check for any renegade
Node.js emulator processes that may need to be killed:

ps aux | grep node
