How To Install Miniconda on Ubuntu 22.04 LTS

Install Miniconda on Ubuntu 22.04

In this tutorial, we will show you how to install Miniconda on Ubuntu 22.04 LTS. For those of you who didn’t know, Miniconda is a lightweight, minimal installer for conda, a powerful package and environment management system for Python. Unlike Anaconda, which comes with a large number of pre-installed packages, Miniconda allows users to start with a clean slate and install only the packages they need. This makes it an ideal choice for those who want to maintain a lean and efficient Python development environment.

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 Miniconda 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).
  • An active internet connection. You’ll need an internet connection to download the necessary packages and dependencies.
  • 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 Miniconda 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

Step 2. Installing Miniconda on Ubuntu 22.04.

By default, Miniconda is available on Ubuntu 22.04 base repository. Now run the following command below to download the latest stable Miniconda script installer to your Ubuntu system:

wget https://repo.anaconda.com/miniconda/Miniconda3-latest-Linux-x86_64.sh

After the download is complete, it’s a good practice to verify the integrity of the downloaded script. You can do this by comparing the SHA-256 checksum of the script with the one provided on the download page. Run the following command to calculate the checksum:

sha256sum Miniconda3-latest-Linux-x86_64.sh

Compare the output with the checksum listed on the download page to ensure they match.

Now that you have the Miniconda installer script, it’s time to run it. First, make the script executable by running the following command:

chmod +x Miniconda3-latest-Linux-x86_64.sh

We can install the MiniConda using the script for our current user:

bash Miniconda3-latest-Linux-x86_64.sh

Once the installation is completed, we can check the version installed of this Python package manager on the Ubuntu system:

conda --version

Step 3. Create a New Environment.

Now we create an environment named ‘meilana_env’:

conda create -n meilana_env python

Next, activate the created environment using the following command:

conda activate meilana_env

To deactivate, the environment, run this command below:

conda deactivate
