Recoll 1.23.7-1 is the latest version in the repositories for Mint 19.x (Ubuntu 18.04). You could download 1.24.1-2 for Ubuntu 18.10 (cosmic) from:
https://packages.ubuntu.com/cosmic/recoll

If it installs and run fine on your system without dependency issues etc. I could't tell. You will need to try and see.

There is also a PPA at:
https://launchpad.net/~recoll-backports ... ll-1.15-on

@philotux is correct.
I suggest removing the repository version first by:
apt purge recoll
and manually remove the stored database
Then install 1.23.7-1 and rescan
Cheers

btw: it is not necessary to prefix sudo when using apt.
If elevated privilege is indicated apt will ask password.
example: apt update

In a terminal run

Code: Select all

lscpu
Beware, you might get yourself into an independency-not-satisfied circle, if one of these packages has dependencies which are not present or don't have the right version in your system.

dependency check is done, and satisfied, when you install/double-click the .deb you download from the the ubuntu packages link philotux referred to, otherwise using the ppa also mentioned will take care of that as well (note, click technical details of ppa to get a more direct version of command to use for your system, if LM19 then Bionic is our ubuntu base).

for determine what package you want, most likely recoll_1.24.1-2_all.deb will do it for ya, and a quick inxi-v1

Code: Select all

System:  Host: anywhere Kernel: 4.18.0-14-generic x86_64 bits: 64 Desktop: Cinnamon 4.0.9 Distro: Linux Mint 19.1 Tessa 
(my example above) will let you know 86x64 (64bit) or i386/686 or somesuch that shows 64bit or 32bit architecture that you run your linux on (as well lscpu command suggested by philotux, considering the first two lines returned, eg.

Code: Select all

Architecture:        x86_64
CPU op-mode(s):      32-bit, 64-bit
(note CPU op-model simply tells what CPU is capable of, the architecture line tells what you are using, meaning 64bit in this example case)

thanks for reply!! i really appreciate the attention...

and that's interesting ...

https://packages.ubuntu.com/cosmic/recoll has 2 dependencies

https://packages.ubuntu.com/bionic/recoll has 50 dependencies (depends, recommends, suggests)...

Code: Select all

inxi -v1

Code: Select all

System:    Host: somewhere  Kernel: 4.15.0-45-generic x86_64 bits: 64 Desktop: Cinnamon 4.0.9 Distro: Linux Mint 19.1 Tessa

based on results from your inxi -v1 command, amd64 is the .deb version you want,

please note, if going outside repo for our ubuntu base (meaning you want 1.24 from cosmic, versus the 1.23 from bionic) then you might have issues, as philotux mentioned. especially with reverse dependencies (rdepends). Best bet, imo, is double-click that 1.24 .deb so it is installed, with dependencies, via deb package manager (gdebi-gtk) and can be uninstalled via system package manager (apt and/or synaptic) if things get wonky.
