Whenever I open up a page to my gmail account I get a yellow bar at the top of the browser with this message:
This version of Chrome is no longer supported. Please upgrade to a supported browser. Dismiss
When I click on the "supported browser" link in the message above Im directed to a general google Chrome support page which has nothing to do with the Chromium browser.
When I try to update it the regular way I get the following:
$ sudo apt-get install chromium-browser [sudo] password for jmarbas: Reading package lists... Done Building dependency tree Reading state information... Done chromium-browser is already the newest version. 0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 4 not upgraded.
Why do I keep getting that message telling me to upgrade to the latest version if I am already at the latest available version?
I'm seeing this on Raspbian Jessie 8.0 and Chromium browser version 51.
EDIT(Feb 17, 2017):
I am now getting the message that the chromium-browser is "kept back" when I try to upgrade, which means that very recenty after my question was posted, a package in the Raspbian repositories was added/modified and must now be installed. chromium-browser now depends on this new/modified package:
$ sudo apt-get upgrade [sudo] password for jmarbas: Reading package lists... Done Building dependency tree Reading state information... Done Calculating upgrade... Done The following packages have been kept back: chromium-browser libgl1-mesa-dri pprompt rpi-chromium-mods sonic-pi xserver-xorg-input-all 0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 6 not upgraded.
I never got this message before in all my test installations of Raspbian. When it says that chromium-browser is "kept back" it means that there is a package that has been add/modified to the repository that must be installed before the chromium-browser can be updated. So I retried my original command above to see if I can now update chromium-browser and it now works. As you can see below the package "libxcb-image0" is the package that was added/modified:
$ sudo apt-get install chromium-browser [sudo] password for jmarbas: Reading package lists... Done Building dependency tree Reading state information... Done The following extra packages will be installed: libxcb-image0 Suggested packages: webaccounts-chromium-extension unity-chromium-extension adobe-flashplugin The following NEW packages will be installed: libxcb-image0 The following packages will be upgraded: chromium-browser 1 upgraded, 1 newly installed, 0 to remove and 5 not upgraded. Need to get 56.1 MB of archives. After this operation, 32.8 kB of additional disk space will be used. Do you want to continue? [Y/n]
This question has been strangely resolved itself after I posted it. I opened the browser and verified that it is now version 56.
