How can I upgrade/ update my current Chromium from 56 to 57 on Ubuntu 16.10 using the terminal?

I can get Chrome 57 from their official site - download the .deb file then install it but Chromium is still on version 56.

I attempt on my terminal:

$ sudo apt-get install --only-upgrade chromium-browser
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree       
Reading state information... Done
chromium-browser is already the newest version (56.0.2924.76-0ubuntu0.16.10.1335).
0 to upgrade, 0 to newly install, 0 to remove and 55 not to upgrade.

It seems that the latest version of Chromium for Ubuntu is 56.0.2924.76 only?

    Try the PPA launchpad.net/~canonical-chromium-builds/+archive/ubuntu/stage. It looks like version 57 hasn't made it to the repositories yet. – mikewhatever Apr 1 '17 at 14:52

    And "chromium-browser 40 hours ago Failed to build: amd64 armhf i386" on the right-hand side of the page under "Latest updates" from launchpad.net/~canonical-chromium-builds/+archive/ubuntu/… – DK Bose Apr 1 '17 at 16:28
  • @DKBose yes I had a problem upgrading it actually. Still on 5.6.... – laukok Apr 1 '17 at 22:27

    For reasons I don't know, building chromium-browser has been difficult to build on past occasions as well leading to the Chrome version available being more recent than the chromium version. – DK Bose Apr 2 '17 at 1:18
