I’ve never installed chrome. I’d prefer not to have google chrome on my system, and I can’t seem to find an answer as to why it’s showing. Does anyone have an idea how this ended up on my system in the first place and do you know how I might remove it? Thanks

That isn’t google chrome. It is the google-chrome repo. It is basically updating the list of packages available from that repo. You can disable that repo and then it will stop updating.

Google Chrome’s repository is part of the 3rd party repos, whle you were updating the system, the metadata for all repos you are subscribed to update. If you do not want the Google Chrome Repo or any of the other ones, you can disable them through the Software Center.

Thank you for the quick replies! It took me a lot of searching and I couldn’t figure that out, I’m glad I came here. I still have a lot to learn about linux. Thanks again.

please mark one as the solution.
