when I try to update Atom via its menu, the installation fails, with a pop-up notification which reads
Something went wrong while attempting to update atom
Error: Command failed: SHELL=/bin/bash pkexec rpm -U /tmp/atom-updater-linux.installer
rpm: RPM should not be used directly install RPM packages, use Alien instead!
rpm: However assuming you know what you are doing…
error: Failed dependencies:
lsb-core-noarch is needed by atom-1.28.2-0.1.x86_64
libXss.so.1()(64bit) is needed by atom-1.28.2-0.1.x86_64
libsecret-1.so.0()(64bit) is needed by atom-1.28.2-0.1.x86_64
My Atom version is 1.27.1 on Ubuntu 16.04, and I can find
libxss1 via apt. This didn’t come up in previous Atom versions. Can anyone tell me how to overcome this?
