Just figured out that sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade will work if you followed the ppa way.

OSX users using brew

brew update && brew upgrade ethereum

Update to Release 1.3.5 is recommended

    You should also make sure you update to 1.3.5. For OS X users: brew update && brew upgrade ethereum

They removed the binaries because there is already a hotfix release 1.3.5 available.

Upgrade geth to 1.3.5.
