Upgrading root 6.22 to 6.24

I am trying to upgrade from Root V6.22 to 6.24 on my Ubuntu 20 laptop.
Can anyone tell me how to do this? I have downloaded the binaries for the 6.24 package but cant see any quick way to upgrade rather than re-install the full package.

Just extract everything to a folder and update the

source /path/to/bin/thisroot.sh

line in your .bashrc file, to point to the new version. You can simply delete everything in the previous version (folder and files, if it was installed the same way!).

You do NOT need to replace one ROOT version with another one.
You can have MULTIPLE (different) ROOT versions installed SIMULTANEOUSLY in different directories (and easily switch between them).
