Not updating from Linux repository

I'm running Mint 19 and for some time now my regular system updates have been checking the DashElectrum repository and installing program (and required file) updates. My last automated update was a couple of days ago, which installed v 3.3.8.3.

Nevertheless, when I open the program, it still shows it is v 3.2.2 (as it has for some now) and it doesn't connect with a server. Why would that be? What can I do to fix this?

Asked on reddit too: what PPA are you using? We're not officially building for Mint, might it be that you're stuck with an old port?
 
Ok, let's make sure:

Code:
$ cat /etc/apt/sources.list.d/akhavr-ubuntu-dash-electrum-xenial.list
deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/akhavr/dash-electrum/ubuntu xenial main

$ dpkg -l | grep ^ii | grep electrum
ii  electrum-dash                              3.3.8.3-0ppa1~ubuntu16.04.1                     all          Easy to use Dash client
ii  python3-electrum-dash                      3.3.8.3-0ppa1~ubuntu16.04.1                     all          Easy to use Dash client - Python module

?

What is the output:

Code:
$ sudo apt update
$ sudo apt install electrum-dash

?
 
I think I see the root of my problem maybe. I'm using Mint 19, which is based on Ubuntu Bionic (18). What you have here is for Mint 18, which is based on Ubuntu Xenial (16).

My PPAs are connecting for bionic updates instead of xenial. So in your above lines of code, my output reads bionic in each place yours says xenial. And a reinstall changes nothing.

I'm on 16.04 right now. Both bionic and xenial should have updated versions of Dash Electrum
 
OK. But that leaves me back to my initial problem:

Any ideas on how I can fix the problem?

Going to submit the proposal to the Treasury.

During next 3 months we plan to deliver the following:
  • upstream updates and bugfixes (of course)
  • Google Play
  • mixing to hardware wallets
  • better multisig support out of the box (like, create 2-of-3 for your hw wallet, desktop, and mobile)
After paying Mar salaries, we are have -209.56 (yes, in deficit).

At current exchange rate of 64.47USD/Dash our run rate is 155.11Dash per month.
  • 155.11 Dash * 3 month = 465.33 Dash
  • 209.56 Dash deficit
  • 5 Dash proposal submission
Total: 679.89 Dash or 226.63 Dash per month.

As usual, in case of DASH appreciation, any leftover funds would be spent to extend the duration of the project. In case of DASH depreciation, we will go into a deficit mode again and will submit a new proposal after the end of this 3 month period.
 
Dash Electrum 3.3.8.4 release:
  • Trezor/KeepKey plugins: fix signing of CbTx outputs
  • Disable PrivateSend and PrivateSend UI for HW wallets (unsupported),
    allow mixing amounts below keep amount, other PS fixses
  • android receive screen: copy address instead Payment Request if
    amount is not set
  • add PPA for Focal Fossa (Ubuntu 20.04), android arm64-v8a apk build
  • update Tor Proxy in win builds to 0.4.2.6

Thank you for supporting further development of Dash Electrum. We're preparing now next bugfix release along with Google Play submission.
 
Here's the financial report for the Apr 2020. Thanks to the Treasury financing and a donation, we're back in black again.

Now we're preparing next bugfix release (PR108, 109, 110 if somebody wants to dig into the code) plus further bugfixes. We intend to submit this release to Google Play.
