Flatpak Error

hi guys, I am trying to update the flatpak from the cli and I keep getting the following error

Info: runtime org.gnome.Platform branch 42 is end-of-life, with reason:
   The GNOME 42 runtime is no longer supported as of March 21, 2023. Please ask your application developer to migrate to a supported platform.

Appreciate all your help here.


upon further investigation it seems the app


Is causing this issue. Any idea on it would be greatly helpful

You might have some luck running

flatpak uninstall --unused

and see if that removes the annoying and senseless error.

thanks, the only issue is I am using the app HomeBank to keep track of my home expenses. its a nice little app.

The command flatpak uninstall --unused will not remove the Homebank app.

That being said:
Is the flatpak version necessary?
You could install from APT and remove the flatpak.

if I can get it from apt great, I am not keen on the flatpak version. I have had bad experience with flatpak in the past.

Also just installed Microsoft Edge and that was only available with flatpak :frowning:

ran the command and it did remove a bunch of things but the issue still remains

Let's go ahead then and try APT:

sudo apt install homebank

should work. Once installed, use flatpak uninstall hombank to remove the flatpak version.

For MS Edge;

wget -q https://packages.microsoft.com/keys/microsoft.asc -O- | sudo apt-key add -
sudo add-apt-repository "deb [arch=amd64] https://packages.microsoft.com/repos/edge stable main"

sudo apt install microsoft-edge-dev

You might need to update it:

sudo apt update && sudo apt upgrade

You can install MS Edge via:
sudo apt install microsoft-edge-beta
-- or --
sudo apt install microsoft-edge-stable

You can download the .deb file for MS Edge here:

If you download the .deb file and install it from there, it'll still update via the Software Updater.

I do wonder what spyware Edge is putting out though! :wink:

Me, too. I do not trust any company that monetizes user data. My data is my data.
