I hope so... I'm having the same problem - posting here now to be able to find it again, if I find a solution.\

edit: OK, I am not sure if this is the best way, but it worked for me.

First, I clicked on 'Update Now' in Vuze which opened a new browser window with a link to download the newest version.

That gave me Vuze_installer.tar.bz2 which I extracted.

Inside there was a readme.txt:

Azureus requires Sun Java 1.5.x or newer to run.
JRE 1.6 (6.0 series) is highly recommended.

1. Extract the contents of this .tar.bz2 file.
2. Change to the 'azureus' directory where the files were extracted.
3. Start Azureus by running the script named 'azureus'; ex. "./azureus"

If you have the Java JRE installed somewhere unusual (or not in your PATH),
use the JAVA_PROGRAM_DIR option in the script.

So, I opened up Synaptic Package Manager and marked Vuse for uninstall, then searched for Sun Java and installed it.

Then, I clicked the file azureus in the extracted directory (where the README.txt file was).

That worked for me. There's got to be a 'better' way, but I hope that helps until you (we) find it.

Should I do all of that to update Vuze, or will the Ubuntu community come up with an update for it that I can get through Synaptic Package Manager?

Shall I wait, or not wait?
