I cannot update the Microsoft Edge Beta browser. Under "Microsoft Edge -> Help and Feedback -> About Microsoft Edge" only the version number "102.0.1245.14 (Official build) beta (64-bit)" is displayed. And when I enter
sudo apt-get upgrade microsoft-edge-beta
via the terminal, this comes up:
microsoft-edge-beta is already the newest version (102.0.1245.14-1)
although the latest version is 104.0.1293.44.
What can I do without reinstalling the browser completely?
Hey there and Welcome
I want to know that have you installed MC Edge using .deb file or from the terminal ?
Hi and thank you!
I've installed it from the .deb file. What difference does it make?
Microsoft Edge is a browser and Qwant is a search engine tho
I have Qwant browser on my phone, its not just a search engine.
I stand corrected. It is just a search engine and I am going to stop using it. Why? Because of this:
It's too easy to forget Huawei's part in Uighur persecution in China.
I don't trust anything that Macron puts his name too.
Smoke and Mirrors or Hidden in plain sight.
I'll be sticking with Mojeek for now.
The difference is that to update, you'll need to download a new .deb file. If you want to use
apt-get to update edge, follow their instructions for the command line install at Download Microsoft Edge Insider Channels :
WARNING: I'm not sure if the code below will work without uninstalling edge first, so beware.
