According to this site Chrome's current stable version for Linux is 25.0.1364.172 since March 12 (2013). It's the 18th now and I still have version 24.0.1312.52 in my system. I've tried:

sudo apt-get upgrade google-chrome-stable

but it says there's nothing to upgrade. What's the deal here?

Are you using the PPA for chrome? – Thomas Ward Mar 19 '13 at 17:59
There is no PPA for chrome, just the google repository, which is up to date. – Jorge Castro Mar 19 '13 at 18:00
Did you use sudo apt-get update before? – TIIUNDER Mar 19 '13 at 18:02
As @JorgeCastro says I have no Chrome PPA. TIIUNDER: yes I did. Also, since the 12th I've had several system updates and apparently none brought the new version. What version are you guys running (if you use Chrome that is)? Am I the only one having this issue? – Gabriel Mar 19 '13 at 18:08
I have the 25.0.1364.172 – Jorge Castro Mar 19 '13 at 18:14

The answer was given here. I had to manually re-enable Chrome's PPA that had been disabled automatically after upgrading from 12.04 to 12.10. For some reason the software origins GUI wouldn't let me change it there so I had to edit the PPAs files by hand.
