So no matter what I’ve tried, I can’t seem to install the latest versions of the One Dark themes.
At work today I noticed that there were new versions of the One Dark UI and Syntax packages when I was prompted to install the new versions (
0.7.0 respectively). I updated, and everything worked as expected
Later when I got home and opened up my personal computer, I was never prompted to update to the newest versions (I’m currently on UI
0.8.2 and syntax
0.5.0). I forced a “check for updates” and yet still none were found. I double-checked the Git repos to verify that the new versions had not been pulled, but they were still live! I tried restarting Atom and my computer and yet still no luck.
Troubled, I tried forcibly installing them via
apm install, and this was successful in installing the new versions next to the old versions (which I know I shouldn’t do!). After a reload the newer versions did not take effect. Next I tried installing the old versions, and then checking for an update. This worked and I was given the option to update, however once updating, like before, the new versions were not being shown. It was still defaulting to the outdated packages
At this point I completely cleaned out the entire Atom app and any other scattered app files via AppCleaner and did a fresh install of Atom. Turns out the Atom version on the home page does not yet have the latest One Dark packages bundled by default. So, again I checked for updates… nothing.
What’s going on? Why can’t I update to the latest One Dark packages?
