How To Install Anaconda on Ubuntu 22.04 LTS

Install Anaconda on Ubuntu 22.04

In this tutorial, we will show you how to install Anaconda on Ubuntu 22.04 LTS. For those of you who didn’t know, Anaconda is a free and open-source distribution of Python and R programming languages used to perform scientific computations and process large amounts of data. It provides everything you need to solve data processing and analysis problems (with Python applicability).

This article assumes you have at least basic knowledge of Linux, know how to use the shell, and most importantly, you host your site on your own VPS. The installation is quite simple and assumes you are running in the root account, if not you may need to add ‘sudo‘ to the commands to get root privileges. I will show you the step-by-step installation of the Anaconda Python on Ubuntu 22.04 (Jammy Jellyfish). You can follow the same instructions for Ubuntu 22.04 and any other Debian-based distribution like Linux Mint, Elementary OS, Pop!_OS, and more as well.


  • A server running one of the following operating systems: Ubuntu 22.04, 20.04, and any other Debian-based distribution like Linux Mint.
  • It’s recommended that you use a fresh OS install to prevent any potential issues.
  • SSH access to the server (or just open Terminal if you’re on a desktop).
  • A non-root sudo user or access to the root user. We recommend acting as a non-root sudo user, however, as you can harm your system if you’re not careful when acting as the root.

Install Anaconda on Ubuntu 22.04 LTS Jammy Jellyfish

Step 1. First, make sure that all your system packages are up-to-date by running the following apt commands in the terminal.

sudo apt update
sudo apt upgrade
sudo apt install wget apt-transport-https gnupg2 software-properties-common

Step 2. Installing Anaconda Python on Ubuntu 22.04.

By default, Anaconda is not available on Ubuntu 22.04 base repository. Now run the following command below to download the latest stable version of Anaconda to your Ubuntu system:

wget https://repo.anaconda.com/archive/Anaconda3-2022.05-Linux-x86_64.sh

After you download the Anaconda installer, now run the script with the following command:

bash Anaconda3-2022.05-Linux-x86_64.sh

Follow the wizard instructions to complete the Anaconda installation process.

Welcome to Anaconda3 2022.05

In order to continue the installation process, please review the license
Please, press ENTER to continue

The next step is to indicate the installation path, which by default points to the root directory. If you have root access, you can leave it there, but you can also install it in the HOME directory of your account:

Anaconda3 will now be installed into this location:

- Press ENTER to confirm the location
- Press CTRL-C to abort the installation
- Or specify a different location below

[/root/anaconda3] >>>

When your installation is completed, you will see:

installation finished.
Do you wish the installer to initialize Anaconda3
by running conda init? [yes|no]
[no] >>> yes

After installing Anaconda, the next step is to use the added environment settings in the “.bashrc” file by running the following command:

source ~/.bashrc

Verify the Anaconda installation:

conda list

Finally, if you would like to update the whole environment you have to run:

conda update –all
