Hi

Installed Mint 20 Mate and cant find the Application Updater.

Failed to find it via synaptic. tried update-mgr and similar via shell. What is the actual name of the binary?

how can I install it?
or does MATE something else, that I can't find?

It is called mintupdate.

Use this to check to see if you have it installed:

Code: Select all

dpkg -l mintupdate
It should have been installed already when you installed Mint though, so something is awry.

If you have just recently installed Mint then it did not work correctly and you should reinstall.

If it worked fine before but the problem has just arisen then you should use TimeShift to restore a snapshot that was taken before the issue arose.
