Currently my Raspberry Pi uses Chromium 56. I'm having a hard time upgrading it to the latest version. I tried

sudo apt-get install chromium-browser

Unfortunately I got this message:

chromium-browser is already the newest version.

How can it be upgraded to version 57?

  • You say : "Currently my Raspberry Pi uses Chromium 57." and "How can it be upgraded to version 57". I suppose there is a mistake ? Jun 20, 2017 at 13:49
  • Yup, corrected it now...

First, did you update the package list before updating chromium ?
sudo apt-get update

Once this list is updated, your system may find newer version of the desired package, with sudo apt-get install chromium-browser

If no newer version is available, your last options would be to :
1) wait
2) build the program for sources
3) move to another browser that fit your needs, maybe iceweasel ?
