Upgrade fail in Linux Mint


I’m not sure if this is a bug or simply a non-functioning feature in Linux, but when I try to upgrade/update in Shotcut I get…nothing. The application tells me there is a newer version and to “click here” to upgrade, but when I do nothing happens.

I’m running a pretty old version (18.08.14) and have been ignoring this thru several versions, but would now like to get up-to-date with 18.12.23.


You can download version 18.12.23 here.


Sometimes on Linux, the app is not able to properly perform an open URL operation with the host environment. This is out of our control.
