Restricted to Thonny version 2?

Tue Apr 23, 2019 9:48 pm

There's a newer version of Thonny available (3.something) but Add / Remove Software lists only 2.1.16 - is this because the latest version is not compatible with Raspbian Stretch or some other reason?

PRETTY_NAME="Raspbian GNU/Linux 9 (stretch)"

VERSION_ID="9"

Ver 3 is flagged for Buster (and Sid) https://packages.debian.org/buster/thonny

By default Debian and Raspbian is built to run ‘stable’ code rather than leading edge (let alone bleeding edge).

Are you sure you are running Stretch?
Thonny 3.1.0 is installed by default and is the only version in the Raspbian Stretch repository.
Unless specified otherwise my response is based on the latest and fully updated Raspbian Buster w/ Desktop OS.

What does apt policy and apt policy thonny show?

I get this in Raspbian Stretch:

Code: Select all

Pinned packages:

thonny:

  Version table:

         50 http://raspbian.raspberrypi.org/raspbian buster/main armhf Packages
I'm running Raspbian Lite, so no desktop and no Thonny installed, but that shows the version that would be installed if I asked for it.

Fully update Stretch with Desktop

Code: Select all

sudo apt update
sudo apt full-upgrade
sudo reboot
