Until now the FileZilla software on my PC is version

enter image description here

But on FileZilla's website http://filezilla-project.org/download.php?type=client

the latest version is 3.5.1 now.

I have check the packages website and Synaptic Package Manager on my Ubuntu. My FileZilla is same on package. http://packages.ubuntu.com/natty/filezilla

But I want to install the latest FileZilla on Ubuntu. Not version by 2010. Because I use FileZilla frequently. So I think it is an important software to me.

But what can I do for updating my FileZilla now?

Do I need to build from Source? Or some other choice?

Can someone help me? Thank you very much.


It's in this repository.

You can add the repository and install it with the following commands.

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:n-muench/programs-ppa
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install filezilla

All LTS packages have been moved here (for easier rebuilding):

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:n-muench/programs-ppa2
  • Outdated: Does not provide latest version for Xenial (16.04 LTS). – David your friend Sep 4 '16 at 2:31
  • I encountered a bug in Filezilla. After the update, it is fixed. – Casper Sep 4 '16 at 14:21
  • This is not a good solution as there is no release for Ubuntu Xenial 16.04. – kleinfreund Apr 10 '17 at 13:52

The easiest way is to use the official flathub version, it will be updated automatically: https://flathub.org/apps/details/org.filezillaproject.Filezilla

Install it from the command line:

flatpak install flathub org.filezillaproject.Filezilla

Install from Ubuntu Software store:

  • Search for FileZilla
  • click install (on the flathub version!)
  • done.
