Setup Ubuntu 21.04 Hirsute Hippo Discussion

Chris Oliver asked in General

Great guide as always! However, I believe that postgresql is now at version 12 and that 'sudo apt install postgresql-11' will return an unable to locate package error, I would suggest using 'sudo apt install postgresql' instead, worked for me. Thank you.


sudo apt install postgresql-11 no longer works. :)




it might be better practice to install NVM and install node using NVM and install yarn globally using node.

example code might look something like this:

sudo apt install curl git-core zlib1g-dev build-essential libssl-dev libreadline-dev libyaml-dev libsqlite3-dev sqlite3 libxml2-dev libxslt1-dev libcurl4-openssl-dev software-properties-common libffi-dev

# install NVM
curl -o- | bash

# install latest version of nodejs
nvm install node

# install yarn globally
npm install -g yarn

the above can replace the first code block. :)


Good very easy to learn


Very well written! Thanks !!
