Today I downloaded the .deb for Ubuntu(-MATE) 20.04 over there -> https://gmic.eu/download.html#ubuntu
to update my old local G’MIC (v 2.9.2), but when GDebi opens it told me that “the new package (2.9.6) is older than the one already installed (2.9.2)” and refuses to install it.
So I open the terminal and force to install the new version via CL
sudo dpkg --force-all -i gmic_2.9.6_ubuntu_focal_amd64.deb
Install was fine and G’MIC works great but now I have the software updater which always want to re-install the older package…
which is a bit annoying and for sure one day I will forgot to uncheck g’mic when I will have a long list of updates.
Is it Ubuntu? is it a bug in the .deb package on the G’MIC’s website, something like wrong headers in the package or something alike?
