How To Install Yarn on Linux Mint 20

Install Yarn on Linux Mint 20

In this tutorial, we will show you how to install Yarn on Linux Mint 20. For those of you who didn’t know, Yarn Package Manager is an alternative to NPM (Node Package Manager) which presents higher operation speeds with improved security and reliability.

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 Yarn open-source package manager on a Linux Mint 20 (Ulyana).


  • A server running one of the following operating systems: Linux Mint 20 (Ulyana).
  • 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 Yarn on Linux Mint 20 Ulyana

Step 1. Before running the tutorial below, it’s important to make sure your system is up to date by running the following apt commands in the terminal:

sudo apt update

Step 2. Installing Yarn on Linux Mint 20.

Now we import the Yarn repository’s GPG key using the command given below:

curl -sS | sudo apt-key add -

Next, add the yarn repository to the system repository:

echo "deb stable main" | sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/yarn.list
deb stable main

Once done, run the following commands to install yarn on Linux Mint:

sudo apt update
sudo apt install yarn

This will install Yarn along with Node.js. Once the process completes, verify that Yarn has been installed successfully. You can do that by checking the Yarn version:

yarn -v

Congratulations! You have successfully installed Yarn. Thanks for using this tutorial for installing the latest version of the Yarn open-source package manager on the Linux Mint system. For additional help or useful information, we recommend you check the official Yarn website.
