Brave can't be updated to the latest version (v1.63), Linux, apt package

Hello,

my Brave browser seems to be not updated to the latest release version (v1.63). When I perform all required steps from install guide, the apt output is that:
brave-browser is already the newest version (1.61.114).

Is there a way to upgrade Brave version without reinstalling it? I’ve never re-installed browser so my concern is configuration and backups.

UPD. Today I managed to solve the issue → I simply deleted brave browser without purging config files using sudo apt remove brave-browser
Afterwards, I installed the browser accordingly to the official Debian/Ubuntu guide and now I’m running latest version (1.63.174 Chromium: 122.0.6261.128 (Official Build) (64-bit)

I have a real solution that actually fixes the issue.

The instructions that Brave provides to install their .deb package is not complete. It should be as follows (the only change is arch=amd64 in the echo deb signing command):

sudo apt install curl

sudo curl -fsSLo /usr/share/keyrings/brave-browser-archive-keyring.gpg https://brave-browser-apt-release.s3.brave.com/brave-browser-archive-keyring.gpg

echo "deb [signed-by=/usr/share/keyrings/brave-browser-archive-keyring.gpg arch=amd64] https://brave-browser-apt-release.s3.brave.com/ stable main"|sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/brave-browser-release.list

sudo apt update

sudo apt install brave-browser

If you’ve already installed you can just edit the config file for Brave with the same adjustment as above, and you can find this file here:

~/etc/apt/sources.list.d/brave-browser-release.list
