How to update flatpak to the latest version?

Post by mydoghasworms » Wed Mar 07, 2018 2:13 am

The Flatpak version on Mint 18.3 is 0.10.0.

The latest version of Flatpak, however, is 0.11.0 and includes a search command.

How do I update Flatpak to the latest version?

Uninstall flatpak, then

Code: Select all

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:alexlarsson/flatpak
sudo apt update
sudo apt install flatpak
That will install 0.11.3.

No need to uninstall flatpak first. Just run the two first commands as given by @Catweazel and then update flatpak through Update Manager.
Uninstalling flatpak will remove mintinstall (Software Manager) as well which won't get installed automatically when you install the new version of flatpak. You have to deal with that separately.
I suppose that's one of the ironies of life, doing the wrong thing at the right moment -C.C.

Thanks for that clarification.
