Due to performance difficulties, the Google Chrome OS upgrade has been halted

The Chrome OS upgrade was released by Google towards the end of June. However, the firm has rolled back the newest Google Chrome OS upgrade a few days after it was released.

After the upgrade, Chromebook users noticed a number of issues. Users reported performance difficulties on their computers after applying this update. Users were also unable to access Linux containers, which allow the installation of Linux programmes, until Google halted the upgrade.


On June 30, Google published version 91.0.4472.147, which included a number of new features, security upgrades, and bug fixes. Users have now shared screenshots of the Diagnostics app following the upgrade, according to Android Police. Users began to notice performance issues as a result of some programmes causing the CPU to stay at 100% utilisation.

According to Chrome Unboxed, the Linux installer checks to see if you’re using the most recent version of the operating system before proceeding. Chromebooks stated they were running the most recent version, 91.0.4472.114, as version x.147 is no longer accessible. It is, in reality, the same version as the last update, which was released on June 18.As a result, you won’t be able to instal Linux on Chrome OS 91 right now.

After users reported the problem, Google has officially recognised it. However, the source of the update’s problems is yet unknown.

In the meanwhile, Google Chrome will now issue warnings for potentially dangerous downloads and extensions. Furthermore, Google added new capabilities to Enhanced Safe Browsing last month to assist users better pick their extensions and provide extra security against downloading dangerous files from the web.
