Ubuntu repository only updated until Xenial (16.04) - why?

Ubuntu repository only updated until Xenial (16.04) - why?

Helpful | Level 5

My existing Dropbox install is still based on the ubuntu repo at https:confused face:/linux.dropboxstatic.com/ubuntu/dists/ - however, that seems not be updated since 16.04.

 

Current install instructions at https:confused face:/www.dropbox.com/de/install-linux mention to directly install the .deb - is the repo not used anymore, and will the .deb install auto-update without repo?

 

And - can I safely remove the repo and my client will still auto-update?

 

Thanks for clarifications.

 

(also, if the repo is not in use anymore, this page should be updated: https:confused face:/www.dropbox.com/help/desktop-web/linux-commands#add)

Hi there, we're working on getting the Help Center article updated.

In the meantime, you can use the build at https:confused face:/www.dropbox.com/install-linux and the desktop application should be able to auto-update to newer versions.

Hope this helps!
