Stop ubuntu updating thunderbird

Perform this command In this picture, below the Version table: field, we see 38.5.1 version and 31.6.0 version for thunderbird package.

Question now being how to avoid automatic updates in tb in general...

That is to say it displayed in a list windows the only item: lightning and said it was not compatible.

Choices were "check" or "don't" check compatibility.

You will see vivid-security/main (or just differs in release name in another version of Ubuntu) when installing.

You should check what version number available for your Ubuntu system after doing the reloading.

All software is updated centrally via the Update Manager in Ubuntu.

As already stated, you can use Synaptic to lock the version, but i wouldn't do that (let yourself have the latest and greatest version if you can! Instead, hit "Don't Check" when that window pops up again, and make the decision on compatibility yourself.

Retrieving the version of the latest release of Thunderbird from the Mozilla website...

Latest release version of Thunderbird : Currently installed version of Thunderbird : Traceback (most recent call last): File "/usr/local/bin/", line 1045, in bs.start() File "/usr/local/bin/", line 207, in start ti.start() File "/usr/local/bin/", line 241, in start self.checkforupdate Gui() File "/usr/local/bin/", line 540, in checkforupdate Gui self.update Actions Gui() File "/usr/local/bin/", line 555, in update Actions Gui dbus Session Address = get System Output("grep -z DBUS_SESSION_BUS_ADDRESS /proc/" pid "/environ | sed -e 's/DBUS_SESSION_BUS_ADDRESS=//'") File "/usr/local/bin/", line 124, in get System Output return result[0] Index Error: list index out of rangehi, well, there does seem to be a problem with checkforupdate there on your system, i'll look into this..

--------copy of terminal output---------- ps aux | grep thunder miki 1892 0.0 0.0 3320 804 pts/0 S grep --color=auto thunder [Code]....

today at startup my Tb (not precisely sure what version it was) asked if it should check compatibility of the lightning calendar addon.

I clicked on check and after nothing happened for several minutes on "cancel".
