I tried, unsuccessfully, to upgrade my installation to 4.3, but was thwarted by the myriad .deb files I would have had to wrangle.

The file I received was a .tar.gz file that, when unpacked had more than 20 .deb files to install. I'm afraid that I don't have time for that.

Is there a single .deb binary that I can use?

Thank you,

In the unpacked .tar.gz there is also an Folder named ReadMes, what do you mean is in this Folder??

All you have to do is to open a terminal window and go the the folder where you put the .deb files with cd folder/containing/the/files.

Then run: sudo dpkg -i *

It will install all files.
