To check if the FPC is in the waiting for update using Synaptic Package Manager:

01. Start Synaptic Package Manager
02. On the bottom-left panel, click
Status
03. On the top-left panel, choose Installed (upgradable)
04. On the right panel, see the exclamation mark at the right of fpc

If the fpc is marked with an exclamation mark, your Lazarus will most likely stop working after you (accidentally) upgrade it. At least it happened on me twice.
You are right... it was marked as upgradeable... now it is locked.  Thanks again.

What I really would need now is a set of step-by-step instructions to upgrade Lazarus to 1.8.4 on the Raspberry Pi 3B with Raspbian Stretch...

I develop and debug on the Kubuntu Linux on the PC, then I transfer all the source to the Raspberry for a final compilation and testing. For this, I need that the two Lazarus versions (PC and Raspberry) are kept in sync....

I can't seem to install 1.8.4 on Ubuntu 18.04.

I have tried the default deb package and also picked the three separate programs from sourceforge.

The fpc installation was pretty fast and I got the compiler running.
But when I click on the lazarus deb package (lazarus-project_1.8.4-0_amd64.deb), it just vanishes without proper response. It doesn't give any errors.

Is there another way to install Lazarus?

Thanks!

I can't seem to install 1.8.4 on Ubuntu 18.04.

Have you tried this:
https://forum.lazarus.freepascal.org/index.php/topic,41524

Installing Lazarus on Linux, especially Ubuntu can be tricky sometimes. If you have followed the tutorial but still can't install it, please provide more information so I may be able to do some tests to understand the problem. But as you said it just vanished without any response, it seems you have use the version provided by your Ubuntu repository.

Maybe you can try the workaround suggested by @bylaardt. I haven't tried it but is sounds possible:

Thank you Handoko I will check it out.

In the mean time, just for the record, I couldn't find Lazarus in the repos. I used the downloads from the lazarus-ide.org site.

Ubuntu has a version of FPC in the repository. if you update it, the new version installed becomes "fpc 3.0.4+dfsg-18ubuntu1".
the current deb requires fpc = 3.0.4 as dependency.

Yes there is, now that you have FPC installed. Just get Lazarus from SVN and run "make".

No need to struggle with the .deb packages.

Here's what I tried next to easily fix the problem...

Since nothing happened when I run the deb packages, I was quite confused on how to go about the update. So all I did was type the following on the terminal.

sudo apt-get install lazarus-ide

And the whole thing got installed.

Perhaps running the first (failed) deb package registered the list of packages for download.

Anyway, I'm glad this works now and thanks for all the inputs!

Usually SourceForge has the latest stable release of Lazarus. But after a while Ubuntu repository will catch up too.

The packages on SourceForge and Ubuntu repository are not exactly identical, combining them usually will cause problem. And that is one of the reasons to fail if you try to install Lazarus when using latest version downloaded from SourceForge. It (the Ubuntu) may 'force' you use the FPC in the Ubuntu repository. Not always but some in my tests, I had to disconnect my internet connection or it won't able to install successfully.

And of course, if the version of Lazarus you wish to install is already in the Ubuntu repository, using it is the easiest way to install Lazarus.

Hmm, just updated to 1.8.4 from ~.2.

Not sure if its a new feature or just something I cannot find how to turn back on, but ...

Hint flag that pops up a when you hover the mouse over a identifier no longer contains a hyperlink, typically to move to declaration of that identifier.

Is this intentional ?   Would be a shame IMHO ....
