Please open ARM terminal and run the following command:

 dpkg -l 'exagear-desktop'

If the output contains the following:

dpkg-query: no packages found matching exagear-desktop

If the output contains the following:

||/ Name                     Version   Description
+++-========================================================================
ii  exagear-desktop          2         ExaGear binary translation system

then you've installed ExaGear Desktop using 'apt-get install exagear-desktop' command.
Depending on what you get in the output proceed to the one of the 2 options below to update ExaGear.

1. Update ExaGear Desktop installed with install-exagear.sh script

To use the new version of ExaGear you should make fresh (clean) installation of the new version, i.e. uninstall old ExaGear packages and then install new ones.

Backup your license key:

sudo cp /opt/exagear/lic/pk* ~/Downloads

!!! Note that the following command will fully delete your guest x86 image with all guest x86 applications installed on it.
Uninstall old ExaGear packages:

$ sudo apt-get purge exagear exagear-mem2g exagear-legacy
$ sudo rm -rf /opt/exagear/images

Unpack downloaded archive with the new version of ExaGear (by default downloaded archive is saved to Downloads directory):

$ cd ~/Downloads/
$ tar -xvzpf exagear-desktop-*.tar.gz

Install and activate ExaGear Desktop by running install-exagear.sh script:

sudo ./install-exagear.sh

This is it. The script installs the new version of ExaGear and the guest x86 image that better fits your host ARM operating system. 

2. Update ExaGear Desktop installed with 'apt-get install exagear-desktop' command

Update Raspbian apt-get repository and then install new packages. Please open ARM terminal and run the following commands:

$ sudo apt-get update
$ sudo apt-get install exagear-desktop exagear-raspbian exagear-guest-raspbian-8 exagear-dsound-server

This is it. Now you have ExaGear packages updated to the latest available in apt-get repository.
