I'm running Ubuntu 12.04 LTS (64bit) and am trying to install the latest version of Chrome (not Chromium).

Currently I have Chrome 30.0.1599.114 installed. I'm following the instructions on this page trying:

wget https://dl.google.com/linux/direct/google-chrome-stable_current_amd64.deb
sudo dpkg -i google-chrome-stable_current_amd64.deb

which works without errors - as does:

sudo apt-get install google-chrome-stable

but both times I'm ending up with Chrome 30.0.1599.114 and I'm too Ubuntu-novice to do anything about it...

Any ideas?

  • Since it's goole who maintains that repository either contact with them or wait until they 'fix it'. – xangua May 12 '14 at 20:06

    The instructions you're following are for 14.04, not 12.04 which you currently have installed. Might be time to upgrade. – Drac Noc May 12 '14 at 20:07

If you already have the Chrome ppa added and Chrome installed use

    sudo apt-get upgrade google-chrome-stable
