Ubuntu – How to upgrade Discord to v 0.0.12?


Today I saw that I could update Discord on Ubuntu 20.04.1 LTS to version 0.0.12. The problem now is that in the Ubuntu Software the newest version is 0.0.11. I also cannot open the .deb file that discord downloads for the update in Ubuntu Software. I also tried to uninstall and reinstall Discord through Ubuntu Software. I also tried to update through the command line with the snap. I used snap refresh discord and it said that there were no updates available.

The message I get every time I open Discord:

If you've installed the snap version before, update it with the command sudo snap refresh discord

Else if you've installed discord from the official website, update it through the following steps.

  1. Go here to download the latest .deb file.
  2. Open terminal and go to the folder where you've download the file.
  3. Install it using sudo apt install ./<package name>
