Download the tarball
At the time of writing this tutorial, the latest stable version of Go is version 1.16.4. I'd recommend that before downloading the tarball, visit the official Go downloads page and see if there is a new version available for use.
wget -c https://dl.google.com/go/go1.16.4.linux-amd64.tar.gz -O - | sudo tar -xz -C /usr/local
The above command should be ran with a user that has sudo privileges. This command with download and then extract the tarball to /usr/local.
Adjusting the PATH variable
By adding the location of the Go directory to the $PATH environment variable, the system will know where to find the Go executable binaries.
Next, save the file and load the new PATH environment variable into the current session.
Verify the installation was successful
To ensure that the installation was successful, run the following command.
