I am having a lot of issues with Bonn 3.2.2 QGIS and would like to uninstall this version and install an older version that is more stable.

  1. What seems to be a stable version of version 3?
  2. What is the best way to do so on Linux?

2 Answers 2


The most stable version is the long term release (LTR) which is at 2.18.24. The 3.2 series is at 3.2.3.

  • Thank you , do happen to know the best way to uninstall and reinstall 2.18

  • I know how to install the latest version or update the version but how do you install a specific version such as 2.18 (Long Term Release Repository)

    There's a link to download the long term release on the QGIS download page.

  • A link to what, I am new to Linux and am having a hard time figuring this install process? I know where the download page is but it is all foreign to me and not sure what my next step is to install it. All help appreciated!

Ihis is how I did it:

The following worked for me on Ubuntu 16.04 and QGIS 2.18:

sudo apt remove qgis

sudo apt purge qgis

Then: sudo apt update

sudo apt install qgis python-qgis

this was found here Broken packages and unmet dependency installation QGIS, PostgreSQL and postgis Ubuntu 14.04 and posted by Karlo Guidoni Martins

Thnk you for all that offered help.
