Upgrading to Enpass 6.0 on Linux Mint 18

Enpass 6.0 Linux Mint Installation

Enpass is a password manager I’ve used for quite a long time and while it’s not the perfect one it has been keeping its security promise with auditing and their UI isn’t that bad. The desktop apps are free as well. Now the upgrade from 5.0 to 6.0 was supposed to be a big one and there were bugs all around so I didn’t update my installation for some time. I’m also still using Linux Mint 18 as it’s still supported and gets updates. But when I did try to get the Enpass update, I ran into a problem. The previous version wasn’t being overwritten and then there was dependency problems.

Enpass 6.0 Linux Mint Installation

Now if you have an older version installed, you will have to completely uninstall it first. There’s a folder in your user folder called Enpass which needs to be removed. The database folder is in a Documents folder and will not affect the installation and is upgraded smoothly.

Once you’ve removed the old package, install the new one by adding Enpass’s repository to your sources list
sudo echo "deb https://apt.enpass.io/ stable main" > \

Then you have to get a key
sudo wget -O - https://apt.enpass.io/keys/enpass-linux.key | apt-key add -

Then you have to install libcurl3 and enpass
sudo apt install libcurl3 enpass

If you have already installed enpass through their official documentation, then you just have to install the libcurl3 package for it to work.
