I have telegram desktop and every now and then the "update telegram" button appears at the bottom of the telegram app GUI.

If I run apt-get update and apt-get upgrade nothing happens, there aren't any telegram packages in the list of packets.

And if I click on the update bottom from the GUI, nothing happens and after a while the buttom pops up again.

How can I solve this? Can I update from terminal?

    How did you install the app? I recommend getting the package from the official website and extract it anywhere you like. You'll be able to do in-app update. – pomsky Sep 9 '17 at 8:04

IMG:  You don't have the Telegram snap package from the Ubuntu Software application installed. If you want to install the latest stable version of Telegram, the name of the snap package to install is telegram-sergiusens and the commands to install it are:

sudo apt install snapd  
sudo snap install telegram-sergiusens

Telegram is a popular messaging protocol with encryption and security as its key focus. telegram-sergiusens is the latest version of Telegram, the same version as the Telegram file that is available at the official Telegram website. The command to update telegram-sergiusens is:

sudo snap refresh telegram-sergiusens   
  • It does not pop up for me after running the snap command – Gamaranto Sep 9 '17 at 8:17
