Why deepin store is still showing old version of apps?


I want to install Android Studio but deepin store is still showing old version of it e.g. 2.3.3 while their recent official website is showing that they have updated the versions of apps in their deepin store including Android Studio.

Is there a manual way to update the database of deepin store apps?

P.S. I am using deepin 15.5 Stable release.

Hi HQuser, and welcome to LQ.

The programs held in distro repositories (and hence stores) are often behind the upstream versions of those programs because distros like to test programs to verify that they are going to work well with the distro before accepting and releasing them.

I don't quite understand your phrase "while their recent official website is showing that they have updated the versions of apps in their deepin store including Android Studio". Who is the "their"? - Android Studio or Deepin? Can you provide a link to the relevant page on the "recent official website".

This is the link which stated that they updated the android-studio: https://www.deepin.org/en/2017/09/08...store-2017-09/

This update was a week after the Google released the Version 3 of android-studio.

The link you provided does not say which version of the updated Android Studio was uploaded to the Deepin Store at that date.

The link http://appstore.deepin.org/app/android-studio states that the current version in the Deepin store is 2.3.3.0~r1, although that page does not give the date of that version's entry into the store.

It looks from the above link however that the version update you are talking about in September was not version 3 (a week would have been a very quick turnaround for a package of this nature), but the 2.3.3.0 version. I'm sure that this can be verified somewhere but I'm not a user of Deepin so can't tell you where.

If you need a more up-to-date version than that (i.e. version 3), then you need to search on the web for how to directly install version 3 on Deepin without having to use the store version.

I see, I think you're right. I was just trying to install from deepin store because its much easier than manual install.

Nevertheles, thank you for your help.

^ the question remains, do you really need that newer version?
installing it - or trying to - will likely create unknown pains.

From a Linux Mint user's perspective, I sometimes decide to directly install programs that are more up-to-date than those in the Ubuntu and Mint repos, usually because they have features I particularly want or need. This might take the form of a deb package from the developer's site, a runnable portable executable from the developer's site, or a package from another repo such as Getdeb or a PPA. On the very odd occasion, I will also make a package from source but I try to avoid this.

In almost all cases it works out well, but you have to be cautious as to the provenance of the software in question. Try to obtain it from the developer's site or a well-known and trusted alternative repo.

If the installation of the package is a little convoluted, then it is best to make a system image before you go through the process so that you can roll back easily if things go awry.

In saying all that, https://tutorialforlinux.com/2017/01...it-easy-guide/
