My OS is Ubuntu 17.04. A month or so ago I installed the snap package of LO, which is version 22.214.171.124. I did this because I THOUGHT the benefits of snap packages include: (A) They will update themselves automatically; and, (B) The maintainer - in this case, LO - will always insure that the most current version of the software is available as a snap package. So, whenever LO would come out with a new version, my copy of LO would automatically update to that new version ASAP because I installed it using the LO snap package. Well…
I see that about two weeks ago LO published version 5.4.4, and it is available as a debian package to download. Well, I assumed that my copy of LO installed using the snap package would on its own update to version 5.4.4. So far, it has not after two weeks.
Why is that?
If snap packages do not update automatically to the new version when it is available, then it seems some of the things written about them are wrong, and they aren’t as great as they are made to sound. Or, am I misunderstanding something?
