can't update

I recently tried to update Calibre 0.9.11 to 0.9.29 and after I downloaded the update file and tries to run it I got a message stating "This installation package could not be opened. Contact the application vendor to verify that this is a valid Windows Installer package." I still have the file but can't open it. Can you help?

I apologize for the delay getting back. I've been involved in a family emergency but all is fine now.
I redownloaded the update and it worked like it should. BetterRed, I forgot the exact site I used but I have bookmarked the link you sent me so I will have it next time. Thanks!

@Firestorm, glad we could help,

As a general rule I suggest its always best to download software from the producers site rather than from commercial download sites.

Good Luck - BR

Did you read the instructions on the Calibre download page for Linux?
Quote:
Download for linux

The latest release of calibre is 0.9.31. What's new.

Please do not use your distribution provided calibre package, as those are often buggy/outdated. Instead use the Binary install described below.

Binary install

calibre has a binary install that includes private versions of all its dependencies. It runs on 32-bit and 64-bit Intel compatible machines. To install or upgrade, simply copy paste the following command into a terminal and press Enter:
Code:
sudo python -c "import sys; py3 = sys.version_info[0] > 2; u = __import__('urllib.request' if py3 else 'urllib', fromlist=1); exec(u.urlopen('http://status.calibre-ebook.com/linux_installer').read()); main()"
