For new installation, download the .deb file from Google, then simply run

sudo apt-get install lsb-core
sudo dpkg -i google-earth-stable_current_amd64.deb

If you have the previous version of GE installed, then remove it first:

sudo dpkg -P google-earth-stable
sudo rm -rf /opt/google/earth/free

Works like a charm!
