Unable to update Slideshow Gallery WordPress plugin

I have WordPress plugin Slideshow Gallery on my site maui114.net. WordPress Plugin Directory offers no way to automatically update to the current plugin version 1.6.9. I followed Tribulant instructions and downloaded Zip file with 1.6.9. Tried to install in WordPress by Add New Plugin but installation failed with error message "Destination folder already exists. /home/o7fwsfcocdi0/public_html/maui114.net/wp-content/plugins/slideshow-gallery/". I don't want to completely delete the plugin and then install it as a new plugin because I believe I will lose my saved images and galleries. I don't know how to proceed to update this fine plugin without losing my existing galleries.

    Thank you for your question.

    You got the error because you tried to install the plugin that was already there. You can update(delete old and upload new version) the Slideshow Gallery plugin without any fear. All the data, settings, etc. will remain intact when you update the plugin.
