Could you please clarify to me correct way to update PyCharm on Linux?

Is it impossible to update PyCharm internally?

In

help > check for update
I can just download a new archive.

Should I remove previous folder with PyCharm and unpack new or I should another way for this?

Answer

On Linux, you have to delete the old pyCharm directory and start using the new package. There's no other way, at least for now.
