Trouble upgrading Manager to new version on ubuntu 14.04

I just tried to upgrade Manager from v16.11.70 to v18.5.41 on a Ubuntu 14.04 laptop and received an error, this is what I did:

sudo dpkg -i “Manager (3).deb”
Selecting previously unselected package manager-accounting.

You might want to run ‘apt-get -f install’ to correct these.
The following packages have unmet dependencies:
manager-accounting : Depends: libwebkit2gtk-4.0-37 but it is not installable
E: Unmet dependencies. Try using -f.

sudo apt-get -f install

Looks like this version libwebkit2gtk-4.0-37 is not available on ubuntu 14.04 therefore it can’t be installed, is this correct?

What Manager version can I roll back to get me going again?, as I won’t be upgrading ubuntu anytime soon.

The system requirements are stated clearly on the download page:


If you search the forum, there have been numerous discussions on this subject.

It looks like your installation of the new version of Manager was not successful. Isn’t your old version still in place? Or did you delete it? There is nowhere to download obsolete versions of Manager. (Yours is literally thousands of updates out of date.)

Thank you.
I didn’t delete the old version, after the new install failed the old version seemed to have been corrupted and came up with an error.

I found a previous version in my downloads and have reinstalled that.
