Google Chrome OS update withdrawn for causing performance issues, leaves another issue in its wake: report

The latest Google Chrome OS 91 update seems to have created another issue when it was pulled out for degrading performance. Google released the update to version 91.0.4472.147 at the end of June for Chrome OS, but users reported that it was causing performance issues on their laptops, after which it was withdrawn. However, this seems to have created another issue in which users cannot use the Linux container which allows installation of Linux applications.

The last incremental update for Chrome OS – version 91.0.4472.147 – was published June 30 with several features, security updates and bug fixes. A few days later, users started to report performance drops because some processes cause the processor to stay at 100% utilization, because Noted by Android police.

Google then pulled the update from the server, but in doing so it blocked access to the Linux container for Chromebook users. The Linux container allows Chromebook owners to use Linux apps.

According to a report By Chrome Unboxed, this issue occurred because the Linux container first identifies whether the latest version of Chrome OS is installed and prompts to update to the latest version if it cannot find it. Since Google pulled the update from the server, Chromebooks have been shown to be on the latest version – version 91.0.4472.114 – but the Linux container still thinks an update is available.

It seems like a simple oversight, which can be easily corrected. As of yet, there doesn’t appear to be a fix for this issue, and Google hasn’t released a new update either. Those using Chrome OS version 91.0.4472.114 should ideally stick with it until Google confirms that the issue with the incremental update has been resolved. Those who have already updated and are experiencing these issues should report the bug which will draw more attention to it. You can visit the Chrome OS forum or drop the bug to submit your comments.
