Chrome no longer supported (Solved)

When I switch on my computer this evening and log onto my email accounts it says ‘This version of Chrome is no longer supported’.
I downloaded and and installed google-chrome-stable_current_amd64.deb and the message is still there.
What have I done wrong. ?

I take it it’s the email website that’s returning that message ? … and that other websites work properly ?

Which distro/version ?

Who is your webmail provider ?

and which version of chrome ?

If you don’t know, post the output from:

cat /etc/lsb-release


dpkg -l | grep chrome

Here is the data
don@ldwatson ~ $ cat /etc/lsb-release
don@ldwatson ~ $ dpkg -l | grep chrome
hi google-chrome-stable 34.0.1847.137-1 amd64 The web browser from Google
ii xserver-xorg-video-openchrome 1:0.3.3-1build1 amd64 X.Org X server – VIA display driver
don@ldwatson ~ $

I use Virgin Media as my service provider and that message comes up in my Virgin account and my GMail account.
It does not occur in my Hotmail account.?

Maybe ring VM support and ask them what the required version of Chrome is - the fact you’re running Linux is irrelevant (in fact, I wouldn’t mention it as they’ll use it as an excuse not to help).

Worst case, if you can’t find a PPA for the required/newer version, is to compile your own nightly version (will take ages, and may not work at all!)

Looks like you put a hold on the pre-aura version of Chrome


sudo apt-mark unhold google-chrome-stable


sudo apt-get install google-chrome-stable

did it update to version 38.0.2125.104 ?

Thanks Mark,
I haven’t tried to log on and see if there are any messages but will do later :smiley:

@chemicalfan I tried to contact the helpline but after some time going round in ever decreasing circles and some time trying to speak some form of English ? to HELP in India, I was slowly losing the will to live. >:( I just gave up and came back here where Mark has just provided another miracle. ;D
Great karma

PS If all is well I will mark solved later
PPS I have signed in to both offending sites and all is ok.
Thanks again Mark ;D

You’re most welcome :slight_smile:
