Tutanota update process - F-droid

Hi People,

Since a week or so I got an email from Tutanota to update the Tutanota app, (installed earlier via App Lounge).
AppLounge did not notify me to update the Tutanota app, nor could I actively force it to see and install the update. Checkbox for Opensource app was on all the time.

Only when installing the F-droid app and after allowing F-droid to install unknown apps it would update. F-droid app also immediately prompted to update four other apps,…

Is this the normal way or should AppLounge be able to see the update and facilitate the update?

The Tutanota version in the AppLounge is not the version on the PlayStore. I do not understand this différence (it’s may be only a matter of time ?). You will not have any upgrade notification until the same version remain in the AppLounge.
However, I give up and I have uninstalled Tutanota and then download the latest version of the apk directly from the official github of Tutanota (you can find the link in the website).
Of course, I now will have to check the updates, their will not be pushed automatically. I assume this solution.

What device are you using and what version of /e/OS?


I am using a Fairphone 4 from Murena on V1.8.1-s

For information, the version of Tutanota :

  • App Lounge : 3.108.6
  • PlayStore : 3.110.0

Yes and the version on F-Droid is V3.109.4

I just noticed I have the same problem with ProtonVPN, apparently there is a problem with updating apps offered in both the Play Store and F-droid.
