  1. Question: If I install via PPA, do I have to remove the old version before installing 6.2.

    1. with the PPA, you don't have to remove your current version, first your normal system updates will give you the latest in the PPA. However, the PPA still havent added 6.2, it is still 6.1.5, i really hope they fix it soon. Sorry, for 6.2 please try one of the other methods mentioned above.
