Ubuntu: Why apt-get does not install latest version [duplicate]


This question already has an answer here:

I'm trying to install the latest version of Git. The ubuntu installser apt-get install versions 1.9.1, while the latest version is 2.9.1.

The same thing happens with Docker. Apt-get installs only version 1.11.2 while the latest version of Docker is version 1.12. I want to install the latest version of Docker, that is version 1.12 to work with the latest features.

Is there a way of specifying to install the latest version?


The easiest way is to add the PPA for Git release candidates by the "Ubuntu Git Maintainers" team at https://launchpad.net/~git-core/+archive/ubuntu/candidate:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:git-core/candidate  sudo apt-get update  sudo apt-get upgrade  

Note that the "Ubuntu Git Maintainers" team also maintains a PPA for Git stable releases, but since you said you wanted the "latest" version, the PPA for Git release candidates may fit your preference better. In many cases, both PPAs give you the same latest version of Git (2.9.1 as of when this post was written).
