which seems to promise updates. May you explain how updates work, or direct me where updates are explained?
This command seems to work without errors, but how can I start the program? On Desktop there is no link to start it and running "joplin" or "Joplin" in terminal, gives that the command is not found.
So you mean that every time you run the above command the following happens?
It just replaces the old appimage with the new appimage.
So is there no way to install Joplin in Debian so that it gets updated with the standard apt upgrade?
What errors do you get when you launch the appimage from the terminal? The script will install it to ~/.joplin.

But except some sync problems with the cell phone Joplin, relating to some notes that are no synced for some reasons, it generally works well.
So, after many years of wonderful work with Joplin, I am just trying to understand if these is a better way to install it, to avoid the above errors, to keep the application more updated and perhaps solve the casual sync problems. But I am happy with it, I am even regularly sending money to the developers.
