How to update Chromium web browser?

Post by commandrix » Tue Feb 21, 2017 10:46 am

My Chromium web browser needs updating. I did find instructions to update it online, but what the Update Manager is telling me is that it failed to fetch http://dl.google.com/linux/chrome/deb/d ... le/release. So I suppose something's outdated here. What can I do about it?

Here's the screenshot of what I'm looking at right now if i helps.

I did a forum search for "chromium" , and found some very recent pertinent information for you. (please take special note of the second reply.) :-)

PS: Chrome and Chromium are NOT the same browser.

Chromium and Chrome are different. You will not find updates to Chromium on "dl.google.com".

Results of "inxi -Sz" and which browser you are trying to update would be helpful.
