If you want it now, just install the Mozilla PPA. Instructions are in the 6.0 Release Announcement.

Thanks, Jerry! :)

I took a look into /etc/apt/sources.list

It looks like this:

Code: [Select]
# deb http://us.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ jammy main restricted
...
deb http://mirrors.nxthost.com/ubuntu/ jammy restricted main
...

This is what was available through the Synaptic frontend.
The only way we can change the servers is either edit /etc/apt/sources.list via (I'd rather do this...)

Code: [Select]
sudo pluma /etc/apt/sources.list
We can use any editor, like mousepad, gedit, geany, etc., I use Pluma, OR via

Code: [Select]
sudo add-apt-repository "deb http://nz.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu jammy universe multiverse"
That's ugly, you have to issue lots of CLI commands for all the lines in /etc/apt/sources.list
Now, weighing the amount of work required, I guess my approach (manual update) was better.
Unfortunately, it's a very subjective approach, since that's up to one's computing skills, I know that.
Afterall, "easy" depends on what you know and how many times you did what you know.

Weird, again!

I followed your link for Thunderbird Repo (http://nz.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/pool/main/t/thunderbird/)
I found the 102.3.0 .deb version.
Now, I wonder what's happening, because I found the same package in this place:
http://mirrors.nxthost.com/ubuntu/pool/main/t/thunderbird/
Package data is:
thunderbird-dbg_102.3.0+build1-0ubuntu1_amd64.deb   377.0 MiB   2022-Sep-16 12:29
It looks very much the same as in your Repo! (My server provides a debug version, that's why it's larger...)
thunderbird_102.3.0+build1-0ubuntu1_amd64.deb 2022-09-17 00:29   59M

Why is the update held then?!

Best regards! :)

Howdy folks,
I checked again this morning for updates and still no Thunderbird update.  I'm in the USA so that is what the default repo is and there are 18 mirrors on the page.  I am new to all of this as you know and I am not going to get into downloading software updates the hard way.  I am not close to that level yet with command line and in fact I'm still after 6 months still fighting with the printer driver for my Canon laser printer to work on LL, the command line language on the Canon website doesn't work with LL for some weird reason. Thunderbird works on LL for now and as such I will not mess with it since I'm able to use the new version on Windows7.  As a newbie to Linux I still don't understand why getting peripherals to work is so difficult, I should be able to download a driver and it should just work like it does with Windows, the new version of Thunderbird mail has been out for months but still not available for LL in the USA.  Very frustrating indeed but the pros outweigh the cons with LL that is for sure.  Have a great Sunday
Vint,
God Bless Texas

My Server is ofc set to New Zealand.

That's weird!
This means that the issue is somewhere else, because if the update packages are available on a server, the DNS propagation might take at most 72 hours!
This thread was started on August 25, 2022, 03:00:19 PM. So, we're one month away, and still nothing?
As I said in the previous post, I installed it manually, but this requires some administrative practice.
Might also be a distro developer conflict. The new home for Thunderbird, is /opt/Thunderbird. That forced me to import all data from the old installation, leaving me with the old one in place... Is this such a "deadly" issue?
The launchers have been correctly updated, though... I tested all the available launchers and they all point to the correct version (102.3.0).

Synaptic says that the installed version is 1:91.11.0+build2-0ubuntu0 and that is the latest for Ubuntu 22.04.1.
Again, weird!  :022:

I changed the download server to the first address available. Still, nothing. [http://mirror.fsmg.org.nz/ubuntu]
The second address, says that the lists are unavailable, or server is down [ubuntu.mirrors.theom.nz].
The third address, gives the same version as available (91.11.0). Beside that, is very slow, from România. [ucmirror.canterbury.ac.nz]
I'll switch back to the fastest for RO. [mirrors.nxthost.com, România]. Nothing, yet.

I've tested 5 servers so far and all say the same thing: 91.11.0 is "the latest & the greatest".
Do you have another server address than the three mentioned?
In Romania, we have 9 mirrors.

Best regards! :)

Howdy Jerry,

That is a good question, I have not visited that section in a while but it should be USA?

Hi! :)

I changed the download servers to the fastest server suggested by Synaptic, after reading the sequence of posts here.
Nothing happened! :( I still have the 91.11.0 version... Should've been the 102.x.y. now...

...Finally, I ended up installing it manually, from the download archive. I have now the 102.3.0 version which is the latest.
I still have to figure out how to remove the old version, without breaking loose Hell upon my life... :P
The new version, changed its home to /opt/Thunderbird.

Anyway, if you study the installation procedure, you'll understand why it takes so long to get to servers: it requires to write a setup script to make it run smoothly...
I did it "the hard way": using a combination of CLI and DoubleCommander As Root. (I hate typing long paths in the CLI!!!  :014:)


@Jerry

Do you think you can fix this in Lite 6.2??
I have only a vague idea on what's to do to change to latest so, best thing to do is... Ask! :)

Best regards! :)

I've never tried SeaMonkey, I haven't researched or read much about it as I've used Thunderbird mail for many years on windows OS'.  Now that I'm using a Linux OS I am finding out how long it takes to receive new updated versions of software like Firefox, and Thunderbird mail.  I understand the security aspect in Linux but this new version of mail came out in May!  I still am waiting for the update as of this morning I haven't received it yet.  Patience is a virtue and it is needed with Linux and since I dual boot with W7 I am able to use the new versions when they are available.
Vint,
God Bless Texas

Thunderbird is great! But am I the only one here that uses Seamonkey I wonder? It does what both Firefox and Thunderbird do, yet with thousands fewer lines of code than Firefox by itself!
