To install Python on Ubuntu, follow these steps:

  1. Open the terminal by pressing Ctrl + Alt + T or by searching for "Terminal" in the dash.
  2. Update the package manager by running the following command:
1
sudo apt-get update


  1. Install Python by running the following command:
1
sudo apt-get install python3


This will install the latest version of Python 3. If you want to install a specific version of Python, you can use the following command instead:

1
sudo apt-get install python3.X


Replace X with the version number of Python that you want to install. For example, to install Python 3.8, use the following command:

1
sudo apt-get install python3.8


After the installation is complete, you can check the version of Python by running the following command:

1
python3 -V


This will print the version number of Python installed on your system.


I hope this helps! Let me know if you have any questions.
