[SOLVED] Updating Nemo - how?

Ever since I started using Linux I figured out many other things, some of them even more complicated than a program update but there's still one I can't figure out how to do, namely - how to update Nemo. Synaptic indicates I have 3.6.4 and the latest Nemo version is 3.6.5. But the icon for the Nemo package is grey and when I right click on the package, there's no "select to update" - only 2 options to uninstall it.

What does apt update && apt policy nemo && apt list --upgradable run in a terminal return?

Is there no nemo update waiting in Update Manager?

Mint's version of synaptic doesn't support updating packages.

True. But if Synaptic shows a newer version is available, Update Manager should display the same. And Update Manager would be able to install the update ... unless you have put something on the blacklist foolishly. :wink:

Code: Select all

$ apt update && apt policy nemo && apt list --upgradable

nemo/sylvia 3.6.5+sylvia amd64 [upgradable from: 3.6.4+sylvia]
nemo-data/sylvia,sylvia 3.6.5+sylvia all [upgradable from: 3.6.4+sylvia]
nemo-dbg/sylvia 3.6.5+sylvia amd64 [upgradable from: 3.6.4+sylvia]
nemo-preview/sylvia 3.6.2+sylvia amd64 [upgradable from: 3.6.1+sylvia]
In the blacklist there are only 4 items and none of them is Nemo: Libre Office, kernels, linux-libc-dev (bc this thing broke my system once) and transmission.

Edit: it does't matter anymore, actually. I just switched to Thunar which is light years ahead of Nemo. Image The best part: has something better than a second panel - middle click on a partition or a folder opens it in a new tab. On top of that thunar can remain open for hours and it never crashes, unlike Nemo.
