Different versions between AMC and LaTeX style file version, any solution?
I installed AMC from this PPA on my machine which is running Ubuntu 18.04LTS.
However, when I update documents from inside AMC GUI I get this WARNING message (see attachment). It tells me that the AMC version is different from the LaTeX style file version. The automultiplechoice.sty is located in this path:/usr/local/texlive/texmf-local/tex/latex/AMC/. I think that it is installed when I already installed AMC using the above PPA repo.
So how did I get into this warning message in the first place? What went wrong with my installation. Please help me, I must prepare the sheets the next exam in two days and I am afraid as this WARNING message also points out that I may run into issues later on using AMC when I do capturing and scoring. The documents were otherwise updated successfully, but I won't print the sheets (anonymous 75 copies with different ID) until someone helps me out to clear up this WARNING message and how I can fix it. I don't want to take the risk of printing the sheets and then running into troubles after the exam. I look forward to your help soon.

The style file installed with the package from the PPA is in the folder
You can remove (or move away) the one in

Thank you for your timely help. That resolved the issue. First, I moved away the old sty file from /usr/local/texlive/texmf-local/tex/latex/AMC. I fired up AMC and updated my documents an error was thrown complaining of not finding the sty file. So I realized that AMC still looks for the sty in that old path, so I did a symlink like that from the terminal:
sudo ln -s /usr/share/texmf/tex/latex/AMC/automultiplechoice.sty /usr/local/texlive/texmf-local/tex/latex/AMC/
would that be safe in future? How can I make AMC lookup the sty file in the path of its installation by default i.e. in /usr/share/texmf/tex/latex/AMC/?
