Error installing chromium browser

Although Firefox works fine for most sites, occasionally there will be one that works better in Chrome/Chromium. I attempted to install the Chromium Browser through Synaptic in Devuan Daedalus but downloading of the packages failed. Do different repositories need to be enabled?

I have not changed anything in the default "/etc/apt/sources.list" file, which looks like this:

# Package repositories

(There is nothing in "/etc/apt/sources.list.d/".)

Re: Error installing chromium browser

Looks like Synaptic wants to fetch version 114, while I get

# apt list chromium
Auflistung… Fertig
chromium/stable-security 120.0.6099.224-1~deb12u1 amd64
chromium/stable-security 120.0.6099.224-1~deb12u1 i386

# apt policy chromium
chromium:
  Installiert:           (keine)
  Installationskandidat: 120.0.6099.224-1~deb12u1
  Versionstabelle:
     120.0.6099.224-1~deb12u1 500
        500 http://deb.devuan.org/merged daedalus-security/main amd64 Packages
     119.0.6045.199-1~deb12u1 500
        500 http://deb.devuan.org/merged daedalus/main amd64 Packages

Maybe you just need to run an apt update on the root console before, or tell Synaptic to refresh the repos.

Re: Error installing chromium browser

Ah, what I had to do was use the "--allow-release-info-change" option when updating the repositories due to changing from "testing" to "stable". Rookie mistake! After doing that chromium installed OK.
