Update qbittorrent

Post by ksmith »

Hello,

I'm running qBittorrent/4.0.3 + ubuntu 18.04. What is the safest way to upgrade the seedbox script to the latest version without losing my existing torrent data etc?

I tried upgrading but its not getting upgraded for some reason -

I ran these commands :

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:qbittorrent-team/qbittorrent-stable
and then sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install qbittorrent

but it's still v4.0.3...

qbittorrent-nox -v
qBittorrent v4.0.3

I'm having the same exact issued. There's a bug fix in the newer versions of qbittorrent that I need. I installed qbittorrent-nox from the default debian repository, but now I need to determine the appropriate way to update the package. I'd like to use a package installer since it's easier than compliling. The repository that you used is the same one I'm trying to use, but it doens't seem to show up after I add it. Not sure where to go from here.
