  1. I did this and worked for me:
    I opened a terminal and entered 3 comands as follows:
    sudo add-apt-repository ppa:alexlarsson/flatpak
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt install flatpak

    Then i went to Software Manager and searched for chromium, removed chromium browser and installed chromium web browser.
