  • Im sorry, the upgrade is not installing. I tried to remove chrome and install it again last night after posting this question. NOW m problem is that chrome is not installing from the software center. – Ubuntu newbie Mar 28 '18 at 8:02

Please follow below steps:

  1. Go to the URL and download the libnss3 file
  2. Click on the downloaded file, Ubuntu Software Center will open a dialog to repair. Click OK and authenticate yourself.

    Note: It will update the 'libnss3' library to latest version

  3. Download latest Chrome from https://www.google.com/chrome/
  4. Repeat step 2 and latest Google Chrome will be installed on your system.
