I'm trying to install the latest version of the Owncloud Client (owncloud-client) on a raspberry Pi running Raspbian Linux.

When I just enter sudo apt-get install owncloud-client, I get version 1.2 of the client. So I added the Owncloud repository from the official download page and ran all the commands from the Debian-section as root.

But when I try to install owncloud-client now, i still get the version 1.2 (and not the latest Version, which is 1.6.1

Do I need apt-pinning for this or is there a simpler solution to this problem?

    Can you run this command apt-cache search owncloud-client and apt-cache policy owncloud-client and send the output???

    Did you remember to run apt-get update to update the db?

    That repository you link to doesn't contain the package for ARM, just amd64 and i386.

The repository given on the official download page doesn't contain any package for ARM, just amd64 and i386. So apt can't find a package there that would work on the Raspberry PI.


to install the latest version you have to do the following:

sudo apt-get update 
sudo apt-get install owncloud-client

And the latest available in all your repositories will be installed.


I have a repository with client 2.3.2 and a tutorial to build the client. See https://wiki.sgripon.net/doku.php/building_owncloud_client_for_raspberry_pi.
