Starting today (August 24th 2022), when I try and join a meeting on my Ubuntu 22 machine, Zoom says "You need to be 5.11.9 (4300) or higher". However, I just downloaded the latest .deb file and installed it.
Here are my steps to make sure:
- sudo apt remove zoom
- the /opt/zoom folder is now gone completely
- sudo apt install ./zoom_amd64.deb
- I made sure that zoom_amd64.deb is the file I downloaded today
After I install, if I "cd /opt/zoom", and "cat version.txt", it says 18.104.22.16800
However, when I launch Zoom and go to Help->About , it says 5.10.7 (3311). When I run "ps -ef | grep zoom", the processes listed are from the /opt/zoom folder.
- removing zoom removes the /opt/zoom folder
- installing zoom creates the /opt/zoom folder and the version.txt in that folder has the correct version
- when I launch zoom, it has the older version number.
- the zoom that launches is from the /opt/zoom folder (not some other location)
So it seems like the installer is wrong or that it's not registering the correct version number.
Anyone have any thoughts on things to try?
I think I solved my own problem. What I had to do was this:
- close the Zoom UI
- ps -ef | grep zoom
- I then "kill <pid>" for each of the zoom processes. After killing one or two, the other ones also were killed
Then I ran:
- sudo apt remove zoom
- ps -ef | grep zoom to make sure everything was dead
- used my file browser to go to /opt/zoom, and I ran "ZoomLauncher"
Now Zoom reports the correct version number. I have no idea why this fixed it or how uninstalling would have left and older version though.
Hopefully this helps.
This doesnt fix my issue I"m running Ubuntu 18.04 (32bit). I dont have an /opt/ directory [that I'm aware of}. The client available for download for Ubuntu 32bit, is:
and when I run $ dpkg -I zoom_i386.deb, it gives me:
(that is dpkg dash captial-i, for show the .deb pkg info)
License: see https://www.zoom.us/
Vendor: Zoom Video Communications, Inc.
Also when I goto Zoom - About, I see:
Version: 5.4.2 (53391.1108)
You are up to date.
attempting to join a meeting tells me I need a newer version
No, that's not related.
Nobody has any problem actually INSTALLING THE AVAILBLE .DEB pkg.
The problem is this:
ZOOM, INC. HAS FAILED TO RELEASE AN UP-TO-DATE 32BIT DEBIAN BINARY.
The only available release (listed on the page you linked to) is *NOT* up-to-date.... and thus, AFTER_INSTALLATION, when attempting to join a mtg... one receives the error.
***THE PROBLEM CAN ONLY BE FIXED BY ZOOM, INC. LINUX DEVELOPERS.***
The versions available to download at https://zoom.us/download?os=linux are, respectively:
- for 32bit deb:
But compare to the version avail on 64bit deb:
see the problem? ZOOM, INC. CAN FIX THIS. THIS IS *NOT* USER ERROR.
this didn't solve the problem. Ubuntu 22.04 with zoom not reprting the correct version number of 5.11. What did help me is to download the debian package and installing it with gdebi. As @Jameswalter explained in his comment. He was right but you have to actually download and install the debian package. I am guessing you all know ubuntu is debian based.
