Ubuntu – How can i update a software without password in 18.04


My problem is in my University's library, all the PC have Ubuntu, while thats not a problem, all the software are not updated, which is very much a problem.
For me, Vim is a very much needed tool for programming,but all the system in my University's library have a older version, where "A,B,C,D etc etc" are taken as a input when i click arrows key.

You either need to know root password or you need to be authorized to use sudo command if you want to update/install software.

When you are authorized to use sudo there are two possibilities - either you can use it without a password or you have to provide your password, it depends on how admin set up your account.
