How To Install & add FlatPak Repository on Ubuntu and Linux Mint system

Flatpak is a software utility for software deployment and package management for Linux. It is advertised as offering a sandbox environment in which users can run application software in isolation from the rest of the system.

Changes in 1.4.3 ( Latest Version ) :
  • Fix crash in revokefs.
  • Handle 'versions' extension key (in addition to 'version') when
  • checking for local extensions, which was causing us to uninstall
  • some actually used extensions with uninstall --unused.
  • The 'required-flatpak' metadata key now supports listing multiple
  • versions to support backported features.
  • Fix crash with older versions of polkit.
  • Fix installation of bundles.
  • Fix crash on deploy error.
  • Support building bundles of apps installed from a remote.
  • OCI: Fix handling of locally cached icons.
  • Fix crash when listing unconfigured remotes.
  • Ignore differences in trailing slashes for repo uris.

Install Flatpak on Ubuntu system :

To install Flatpak on Ubuntu 18.10 (Cosmic Cuttlefish) or Ubuntu 19.04 (Disco Dingo), follow this command and run:
