USM disappears after update

Post#1 by robby3000 » 29 Jun 2017, 19:04

Hi peeps

I am new to this and excited to learn more. I am running Porteus on an old laptop (nice!) but Gmail tells me that I am running an old version of Firefox. So I need to update Firefox. I go to the USM and first I upgrade USM. I re-boot and now USM has gone!!

Please help: I just need a simple installation that runs an up-to-date version of Firefox Shockwave Flash.

Why did USM disappear? How do I update Firefox?

Any advice greatly appreciated :-)

Robby

You can update through the terminal:

Code: Select all

update-firefox
Or you can download the last module from Porteus website: http://dl.porteus.org/x86_64/current/mo ... 6_64-1.xzm . Just need to put it inside /porteus/modules, get rid of the old version and reboot.

Hi robby
not sure what you mean with "updated USM",when i invoke the command
this is what i get:

Code: Select all

root@porteus:/home/guest# usm -u usm
Downloading: vercheck.txt  DONE

You have the current USM version.

root@porteus:/home/guest# usm -v
 You are using USM version:  3.2.0
Update Firefox as proposed by fulalas -- it works. :wink:
