[Basic] How to: Install Python 3.8 on your Ubuntu 18.04 VPS

This guide will teach you how to install the pre-configured Python 3.8 package on your Ubuntu 18.04 VPS.

As we are using a brand new machine in this tutorial we will begin by updating and upgrading our packages.

sudo apt update && sudo apt upgrade -y

Next up we will install the software-properties-common package so that we can use apt-add-repository. This will allow us to add the deadsnakes repository to apt so we can install Python.

sudo apt install software-properties-common

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:deadsnakes/ppa

Now that the deadsnakes repository is added, we can install Python 3.8.

sudo apt install python3.8

To verify everything is installed properly, we can use the following command:

python3.8 --version
