Now I have to blender something …

It was available the day after release … what more do you want?

If you cannot wait a day then download and use the portable linux version from the blender website.

Thanks akej74
I did not know about that one.
The good news is that the other day (right after I posted the above post), Blender finally updated. Even then, it still said “2.93-6” and only when I actually launched it I saw that it was version 3 because my theme customization had reverted back to the default layout.
