$ sudo apt-get install ethereum
Unpacking ethereum (1.7.2+build11187+xenial) over (1.6.7+build10273+xenial) ...

$ geth version
Version: 1.6.7-stable
$ which geth
/usr/bin/geth <-- geth is not changed

    Did you try sudo apt-get upgrade ? – jojeyh Oct 18 '17 at 22:13
  • Also make sure you using the latest version of go, this might affect the download. – jojeyh Oct 18 '17 at 22:50

    Can you check if there's an instance running? ps -ef | grep -i geth. Worst case you can restart the machine. – Ismael Oct 19 '17 at 6:53
  • @jojeyh I'm sorry for the late reply. Yes you are completely right. I just did 'sudo apt-get upgrade' then it worked. If you post it as the answer, I'll accept it. Thank you so much. – zono Oct 24 '17 at 11:50
  • How about the degrade? – Ender Nov 19 '19 at 1:52

Type in sudo apt-get upgrade to upgrade to the newest version of geth and you should be good to go!
