Ubuntu – Google Chrome won’t install on 17.04


I had to remove Chrome to have enough space to upgrade from 16.10 to 17.04. I downloaded the latest version from Google. But when it opens in the Ubuntu Software Manager, and I click on "Install", nothing happens.

Gdebi worked for me

Gdebi is a .deb package installer, that serves as an alternative to Software Center for this specific task I.e, installing .deb files.

All you need to do is install it and open your .deb files through it

To install gdebi copy and paste the command below in your terminal.

sudo apt-get install gdebi

For future use make sure to set it as default until an update fixes the issue with Software Center.
