    Cannot apply this update.
    I get a message that it does not have write access to /usr/share/pycharm.
    So I tried :
    sudo updatedb && sudo locate
    sudo /path/to/pycharm.sht
    but I get end up with a conflicts error and requested to select solution from the column – virtually every row only allows me the option to “IGNORE” or “REPLACE”
    After restart get the same message that there is an update available.
