Update to 2049.2 did not work



  • I just downloaded the .deb 64-bit and the install was successful.
    Yet when I run vivaldi, the About page shows:

    Vivaldi 3.4.2038.4 (Official Build) (64-bit)
    Revision 617957ef7aecd50daa95d1a90c590d0becc37bc2
    OS Linux

    Of course, that is the older version.
    what am i doing wrong?
    How do I ensure that the older version is overwritten?
    Thanks for any help...

    p.s. I'm running on Kubuntu 20.04.

    wget -c https://downloads.vivaldi.com/snapshot/vivaldi-snapshot_3.4.2049.2-1_amd64.deb
    sudo dpkg -i ./vivaldi-snapshot_3.4.2049.2-1_amd64.deb

    Why did you download? You do not have any package manager to update your previous Vivaldi Snapshot?



  • @Gwen-Dragon Yes, I normally use Muon to update via the snapshot repo. But when it seemed not to have updated properly (at least by what the About page stated), I tried the manual download.

    Anyway, I just rebooted the laptop and now, Vivaldi shows:
    Vivaldi 3.4.2049.2 (Official Build) (64-bit)

    I wouldn't have thought a reboot is required for proper update, but...

    @gahia64wa I fear your OS have a problem to update.
    I never saw such issue on Mint 20, Debian 10 KDE5 or Ubuntu 20.
