Unable to install edge on ubuntu 22.04

si flag


I have downloaded the Debian packages for edge from Microsoft edge download site https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/edge?exp=e511&form=MA13FJ but for some when I tried installing it I get

Couldn't find any package by regex 'microsoft-edge-stable_110.0.1587.41-1_amd64.deb
I again tried
 sudo apt install microsoft-edge-stable 
and got
Unable to locate package microsoft-edge-stable

Is there a way to get around this and install edge. Thank you.

To install Microsoft Edge web browser in Ubuntu open the terminal and type:

cd ~/Downloads
wget https://packages.microsoft.com/repos/edge/pool/main/m/microsoft-edge-stable/microsoft-edge-stable_110.0.1587.41-1_amd64.deb?brand=M102
sudo apt install ./microsoft-edge-stable_110.0.1587.41-1_amd64.deb

Update May 4, 2023:

Microsoft announced a range of small updates to its ChatGPT-powered Bing chatbot and moved the product from a closed, invite-only preview to an open preview that anyone can join.


For those expecting to use Bing's built-in ChatGPT, this is limited to the ability to sign-up to try the ChatGPT feature when it is released in a few weeks. In the meantime users who sign up to try ChatGPT get to see a splashy webpage containing examples of ChatGPT in action, but without chat functionality.

What size is the file that you downloaded? Mine is 139,680,406 bytes. What happens when you right-click microsoft-edge-stable_110.0.1587.41-1_amd64.deb and select *Open with other application* -> *Software Install* ?

I've run out of suggestions. Maybe it's for the best because the ChatGPT integration feature in Bing doesn't work yet either.

Paste this code on a terminal:

wget -q https://packages.microsoft.com/keys/microsoft.asc -O- | sudo apt-key add -
sudo add-apt-repository "deb [arch=amd64] https://packages.microsoft.com/repos/edge stable main"
sudo apt update
sudo apt install microsoft-edge-dev

This ensures you import Microsoft GPG key and add the Microsoft Edge repository to your system's sources list.

I could install the package today just opening the folder with the GUI file browser and clicking on it -so that the package manager opens. The installation was successful. (My only interest in installing edge is also to use the integration with chat gpt in bing.)

I sit in a Tesla and translated this thread with Ai:

Most people don’t grasp that asking a lot of questions unlocks learning and improves interpersonal bonding. In Alison’s studies, for example, though people could accurately recall how many questions had been asked in their conversations, they didn’t intuit the link between questions and liking. Across four studies, in which participants were engaged in conversations themselves or read transcripts of others’ conversations, people tended not to realize that question asking would influence—or had influenced—the level of amity between the conversationalists.
