Ubuntu – Cannot upgrade to latest version of thunderbird 78


I need to upgrade to thunderbird 78. I currently have 68 running Ubuntu 20.04. I tried:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ubuntu-mozilla-daily/ppa

and then update and upgrade but Ubuntu keeps on telling me:

thunderbird is already the newest version (1:68.10.0+build1-0ubuntu0.20.04.1).


Best Answer

The Ubuntu Desktop Team is currently working on packaging Thunderbird 78. Be patient.

You don't need to add a PPA. The Ubuntu Desktop and Ubuntu Security teams regularly update Firefox and Thunderbird in all supported releases of Ubuntu.

The specific output you received means that nobody uploaded Thunderbird 78 to that PPA.
