sqlite3 update timing

Asked by Tim Duke on 2020-06-24

I am keen to utilise the latest sqlite3 upgrade (currently 3.32), but my ubuntu 20.04 uses 3.31.1.

How does the timing work for upgrades? Do sqlite3 upgrades automatically flow into ubuntu, just with a delay? If so, what is that delay? Or is the current version of sqlite3 'fixed' for all of the life of ubuntu 20.04, to ensure stability?

If I want to upgrade sqlite3 ahead of the normal framework, is there a way to download an ubuntu-fairly-safe package that I can use?

Yes, this is Ubuntu's release philosophy (see the FAQ linked above).

There probably are PPAs, see https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+ppas?name_filter=sqlite3 for a list of potential candidates.

And what also can be possible is a manual download and install of the version for Ubuntu groovy.
