Ubuntu: I upgrade Atom but its version does not change


I am an Ubuntu 16.04 user and want to upgrade Atom to use the teletype package.

What I do is:

  1. Go to Atom's releases page (https://github.com/atom/atom/releases )

  2. Download the latest version which is 1.24.0-beta1 (atom-amd64.deb) and run

    sudo dpkg --install atom-amd64.deb  

    it says

    Unpacking atom-beta (1.24.0-beta1) over (1.23.0-beta1)  

When I check atom's version with atom -v I get:

Atom : 1.20.1  Electron: 1.6.9  Chrome : 56.0.2924.87  Node : 7.4.0  



My Atom is not beta, it's version 1.23.1 and I installed it from the Ubuntu Software app in Ubuntu 16.04. For information about how to install Atom, see this answer. I installed the teletype 0.40 package in Atom from Packages -> Settings View -> Install Packages/Themes.
