The version of Mercurial in Ubuntu can get quite outdated with time. Thankfully, installing and being updated with the latest version of Mercurial is pretty easy:

$ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:mercurial-ppa/releases
$ sudo apt-get update
$ sudo apt-get install mercurial

Tried with: Mercurial 2.8.2 and Ubuntu 12.04
