Hi Shubhashis,

Did you try to reinstall the app or installing the beta version? Are you receiving any errors on your end, or simply the app is crashing? Thank you.

Any update upon the app support for Ubuntu 20.04 both standard and beta versions are not able to install.

Hi Manan,


Could you please try and uninstall previous versions of the Upwork Desktop App first. And follow these steps to install the Upwork Desktop App on Linux:


  • Download the app here
  • Select the file and click Install Package
  • Click here for distribution-specific installation instructions


You can find more information in this help article. If you are still experiencing the same issue could you please post a screenshot of the error message you receive so that we can assist you further?

Hey Nikola,

I've tried to install it again on my system and it is now working as expected. I don't know why it was not installing before. Thanks for the assistance.
