Stuck in an Installation loop on Ubuntu 18.04

When I install Postman on Ubuntu 18.04 via the Ubuntu Software app or via snap, I get version 6 which won’t deal with my account saying I need to upgrade to version 7.

It says to do that by choosing Settings -> Upgrade which doesn’t exist in version 6.

The manual installation instructions for version 7, say to create a desktop shortcut file that doesn’t seem to have any effect on Ubuntu 18.04.

@DaveR1226 Version 7 of the Linux app isn’t listed on our stable channel within Snap just yet. You can download V7 by switching your release channel via the following commands to get access to Postman 7.0

sudo snap switch --channel=candidate postman
sudo snap refresh postman

Alternatively, downloading the tar file from our downloads page will give you the most recent version (7.0.7 as of this post).

Thanks Chris that worked well
