Upgrade Mono on an existing install

Hi there,

I’m a Sonarr user for a long time now and I always used mono 3.10.0 install based on thisfamous guide: http://www.htpcguides.com/install-sonarr-raspberry-pi-mono-310/
For other projects, I have to update Mono to a more recent version and I want to keep it updated.

To do that I have followed these steps:

sudo apt-key adv --keyserver hkp://keyserver.ubuntu.com:80 --recv-keys 3FA7E0328081BFF6A14DA29AA6A19B38D3D831EF
echo “deb http://download.mono-project.com/repo/debian wheezy main” | sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/mono-xamarin.list
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
sudo apt-get install mono-complete

Everything has finished properly and the system is now telling me that the newer version is installed… but it’s not. Mono version is still 3.10.0.

Is that the most recent version for raspberry armf on the repo? Packages seems to be name version 4.

How can I finish my upgrade properly?

THANKS for your great help, as usual.

How are you checking the version?
Are multiple versions installed now?

Not sure, that’s mono’s own repo, but if the name says 4 then it’s not likely 3.10.

I’m using mono --version

how can I be sure to have only one version installed?

Uninstall all versions and makes sure they’re all gone then install the one you want I suppose, beyond that I’m not sure.

I can remove everything I have installed (mono complete) but not libmono-cil-dev without removing nbzdrone…
Another way to do it?


Just remove it… you can reinstall it again. Backup Sonarr’s config if you want to make sure you don’t lose anything…


I add to clean everything I’ve install and purge.
Now it’s ok.
