Installing Git is easy in Ubuntu:
$ sudo apt install git
However, Ubuntu ships with old versions of Git and development on Git is progressing rapidly. New stable releases of Git drop once every 6 months or less.
The latest Git stable releases can be installed using their PPA:
$ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:git-core/ppa $ sudo apt update $ sudo apt install git
Tried with: Ubuntu 15.10 and Git 2.9
