Installing last version of firefox on repos

Postby zenitram » Fri Oct 06, 2017 7:32 am

Hi there!

I have LMDE 2 with firefox 43 installed. It seems to be the latest version installed, since "apt-cache policy firefox" give me that:

Code: Select all

firefox:
  Instalados: 43.0~linuxmint1+betsy
  Candidato:  43.0~linuxmint1+betsy
  Tabla de versión:
 *** 43.0~linuxmint1+betsy 0
        700 http://packages.linuxmint.com/ debian/import amd64 Packages
        100 /var/lib/dpkg/status


But looking here http://packages.linuxmint.com/list.php?release=Betsy I see that version in betsy should be 56 in upstream or 53 in import, and no package shown in main...

So I am a bit in a mesh with which channel does apt/synaptic for installation, or how to choose one channel or another.

Thanks a lot!

Is it LMDE 2? Because debian/import is for LMDE 1 repos.

It would seem a more clear picture would come from the results of

Code: Select all

inxi -r

Yes, and also just in case, the output of these commands:

Code: Select all

cat /etc/issue

Code: Select all

cat /etc/lsb-release

Code: Select all

cat /etc/linuxmint/info
