Can't Update Chromium - Reinstall Chromium?

Post by OwenJoseph »

Hello,

I run DietPi on Raspberry Pi 4 with Chromium in Kiosk mode. Everything works fine except that Chromium displays popup window with information that Chromium cannot be updated.
I thought that after todays update DietPi to latest version this information will dissapear, but it is not.

Does anyone have idea how to remove it?

Best Regards

@OwenJoseph
I've merged your topic with this, as it's the same :)

In meantime I found this topic on Raspbian board https://www.raspberrypi.org/forums/view ... 3&t=264399
It basically describe exactly the same issue on chromium browser and quite some people struggling with it.

Currently I'm testing a workaround that's gonna extend the check to 1 year https://www.raspberrypi.org/forums/view ... 3&t=264399

Code: Select all

sudo touch /etc/chromium-browser/customizations/01-disable-update-check;echo CHROMIUM_FLAGS=\"\$\{CHROMIUM_FLAGS\} --check-for-update-interval=31536000\" | sudo tee /etc/chromium-browser/customizations/01-disable-update-check
Let's see if this is working, usually the pop-up is showing up within next 2 hours :)

after 3 hours still no pop-up. Looks very promising

EDIT: It was running whole night and still no pop-up. This seems to be working.
