Updating Joplin on Ubuntu leaves the old version intact, rather than replace it

OS: Ubuntu 20.04
Joplin version from -> to: 2.7.15 -> 2.8.8

Following the recommendation in README, I ran the following script to update my Joplin:

wget -O - https://raw.githubusercontent.com/laurent22/joplin/dev/Joplin_install_and_update.sh | bash

However, I can still find the old version (the launcher, installation directory, etc.). I thought that the above script simply replaces my current installation with a newer version.

When updating the script pretty much just replaces the .appimage in ~/.joplin, it won't touch anything in ~/.config/joplin-desktop

My bad, I was using AppImageLauncher app, which manages AppImage files in its own way, which eventually led to multiple versions of Joplin. I asked it not to manage Joplin anymore, and it works fine now.
