Upgrade Typora

After installing Typora, the typora package will be managed by apt-get, so when your system updates installed packages, or you execute apt-get upgrade, Typora will be updated to latest version.

# upgrade all packages include Typora
sudo apt-get upgrade


There’s no rpm package for Typora yet, so there’s two way.

One way is to yum install apt, then use apt-get as with Debian/Ubuntu to install and upgrade.

Another way is to use alien to install the Typora .deb, but you need to manually upgrade Typora when a new version is available. This way is not recommended. To get the .deb package of Typora:

  1. Open
  2. Find the value for key Filename in the section of correspond Archiecture, it should look something like ./linux/typora_0.9.19_amd64.deb.
  3. Prepend the filename with to get the url of the latest deb package, for example
  4. Download it, then install the .deb with alien.
