Thunderbird 52.7.0 is not listed as installed software in the ubuntu software center.

Asked by Jim Richmond on 2018-05-21

Thunderbird 52.7.0 is not listed as installed software in the ubuntu software center, its installed, but not in the list of installed software. Please help, just want to make sure I get updates. I've removed it and re-installed it with software center and it works, but its not showing up in the list . New to Linux, sorry...

Everything else in ubuntu is running great. No complaints. Use this more than my Windows machine now.

Thanks

Problem solved, Thuderbird now shows up as installed software in the ubuntu center.

I don't know the terminal commands that well, what you had me type in there seemed to help. Thank you very much, there's a lot I still need to learn about Linux. Especially the terminal commands.

Thank you again, you guys are geniuses.
