Minetest Launchpad PPA Problem

by Red_King_Cyclops » Post

I'm trying to update from 5.0.1. to 5.3.0. on Linux Mint 19, but my terminal gives me the message '"Launchpad PPA for Minetest Developer" not changed' and my Minetest version doesn't change.
My best mods: space_travel, time_travel, and rocket.

Are you running `apt update` and `apt upgrade`?

Commands:

Code: Select all

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:minetestdevs/stable
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade

No, I was just running "sudo add-apt-repository ppa:minetestdevs/stable". I just tried to run all three lines, but I decided not to upgrade since it could compromise my computer's security.

Upgrading improves your computer's security, it's important to get updates to patch bugs. You also want to upgrade Minetest here - I suspect you're tripping up over the terms

apt update will check for updates, fetching information from the various repositories and PPAs
apt upgrade will do the updates, downloading new versions and upgrading them

Thanks, I didn't know about this difference. It appears that upgrading is the way to getting the latest version of Minetest. I'm still a little hesitant to upgrade my computer, but I'm glad to know a way to get the latest version.

After adding the PPA "sudo apt update ,sudo apt upgrade will update and upgrade everything, including the PPA from then on.
It's a good thing.
