Cannot update linux client higher than version 0.9.xxxx

Newbie

Hey there!

 

I have a problem regarding upgrading to version 1.0.xxxx from 0.9.xxxx on linux. Neither Synaptic PM UI or my bash shell seem to be able to upgrade higher than 0.9. What can you suggest I do? I'm running:

3.11-2-amd64 #1 SMP Debian 3.11.8-1 (2013-11-13) x86_64 GNU/Linux

 

The client works just fine, but I am missing my connect features because I run the music in my speakers from my phone at work. Hope you can help. So far I have tried 

 

sudo apt-get update

sudo apt-get upgrade

sudo apt-get autoremove spotify-client

 

rinse and repeat any of those. My package manager tells me that I have duplicate entries. I don't know if that can affect the version it fetches from your servers?

 

sudo apt-get update

W: You may want to run apt-get update to correct these problems

Cheers!

You can update to non-stable using the .deb package from here.
