How to update to latest version on Ubuntu 16.04 [Solved]

Post by averageschmoe » Thu Mar 16, 2017 3:53 am

While I did somehow manage to make my way through compiling MakeMKV with FLAC on Ubuntu 14.04 a while back, I have absolutely no idea how I go about updating to the latest version. I upgraded to Ubuntu 16.04 a couple of weeks ago and I tried 'sudo apt-get update makemkv' just to see what happens -- and was given this:

Code: Select all

N: Ignoring file '50unattended-upgrades.ucf-old' in directory '/etc/apt/apt.conf.d/' as it has an invalid filename extension
Perhaps this is a better question for an Ubuntu forum, but it occurred to me that someone on here could point me at which specific packages I need to uninstall/update/reconfigure/idk from the walkthrough. I'm guessing that apt isn't going to automatically update software I manually compiled, but that's just a wild guess, for all I know that is exactly what apt is supposed to do. I'm not sure if I need to uninstall anything or just follow the directions from start to finish like I did the first time. Thanks for anything.

I have installed it in Mint 17.3 KDE, I do not know about the latest Ubuntu.

You say that you tried 'sudo apt-get update makemkv'
When I update I need to install a new version from scratch, but not uninstalling the old version before that.

I wrote a helpfile of the method that I use with Mint, which does not install using the Ubuntu instructions. Sounds like you will need your own variation. This is:
MakeMKV 1.9.10 and Handbrake in Linux Mint 17, v1.02

Search for makemkv ppa
Add the ppa and install from there
No need to build or uninstall for newer versions

That's good news, I guess. I was definitely hoping to learn something about manually building and updating packages, but that's not on helpful MakeMKV forum members. Thanks.
