Update Zoom from the Ubuntu Terminal
« on: May 03, 2022, 02:03:19 PM »
Hello All,
This is how I update Zoom when running it from Ubuntu

To find out if you are running the latest version of Zoom, open that program and click on your face icon.  If you are told that an update is available, do not download it now.  At least for me, allowing Zoom to download the newest version and install it always fails.

Instead, I proceed as follows

First uninstall Zoom
From the Ubuntu Terminal, enter 
sudo apt remove zoom

Download Zoom from the Terminal typing
Go to the Downloads folder (or whatever folder to which you extracted Zoom) and enter the following command
sudo apt install ./zoom_amd64.deb
It may be necessary to restart the computer for Zoom to recognize the update
Check to see if you successfully updated as indicated at the beginning of this post
