Ubuntu Install Go/Golang

I prefer to install Go/Golang with Ubuntu 20.04 apt since I do not need the latest up to date version. To install run the commands below.

sudo apt update
sudo apt upgrade -y
sudo apt install -y golang-go

Now create a simple script to check if your Go/Golang was installed successfully. Lets name it “test.go”

package mainimport "fmt"func main() {
fmt.Println("hello world")

To run the script.

go run test.go
