I would like to understand better why How to upgrade pgAdmin 4 version 1.1 to version 2.1? was closed as `too localized'.
Was it because
it is not relevant to most of our audience? Or was because it is 'too trivial'? Or both, i.e. because it is trivial is not relevant to most users in DBA SE? Or something else?
I thought it was not too localized because:
- pgAdmin is frequently being upgraded (in a monthly basis) and it is a software widely used by people working with PostgreSQL;
- Someone who is probably far from where I am, asked a question I wanted to know the answer (I mean, it is not too specific).
Previously related questions were asked in Meta: How to edit my question or is it too localized?. This one I understand the question was very specific to OP's circumstances and nearly off-topic in scope. And Closed as Too Localized.

Probably users voting to close as 'too localized' know what they are doing, but do new folks usually understand well this message?
Assuming the 'too trivial' premise is correct (if it is not, please disconsider), perhaps we could improve the close reason to:
