I installed Intellij Idea Ultimate 2016.2 via Ubuntu Make. How can i upgrade to the latest version "2016.4" via Ubuntu Make?


This can't be done using umake, here's a link to the closed github issue How to update installed software?#122. As mentionned you only need to remove the package and reinstall it like this.

umake --remove ide idea && umake ide idea

I posted a way to update all your umake packages at once in this self-aswered question How to update all your ubuntu-make packages?

  • intellij handles all these minor 2016.* by itself so i haven't had to reinstall and install it again. When the 2017 gets released then i can know the answer of my question or validate yours. – Shahzaib Rahim Nov 5 '16 at 16:36
