AppImages are single file binaries that will just run from
that single file, those have nothing to do with apt/apt-get:

https://docs.appimage.org/introduction/quickstart.html#ref-quickstart

Using apt-get, is the preferred way though and will give you
the version from whatever distribution you are using. For
Ubuntu there is a PPA with the latest releases that could be
setup in addition to the main repository:
https://launchpad.net/~openscad/+archive/ubuntu/releases

ciao,
Torsten.

A slight correction Torsten. The OpenSCAD version 2021.04.13.ai7733 (git
d1c445d4c) will not run on an uptodate stretch on a 4 core i5, some
library is missing.  Runs fine on an uptodate buster.

Cheers, Gene Heskett

My apologies, Torsten
I was trying to report two separate problems, one with the Appimage, and the
other with the 2021.01 64 bit Linux version, but I found the problem with
the Appimage.

I realized my mistake as soon as I posted it, and edited it to read:

I just tried to install OpenSCAD 2021.01 from
https://openscad.org/downloads.html
using sudo apt-get install openscad, but when I run it, I get version
2019.05

I realize now that I should have deleted it and posted again.
