Ubuntu – How to install PgAdmin3 version 1.20.0 in Ubuntu 14.04

aptcommand linepparepositorysoftware installation

I try to install using PPA

First, I add a link to a file repository source.list directory the /etc/apt/sources.list

$ Sudo nano /etc/apt/sources.list

 deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/pitti/postgresql/ubuntu precise play

 deb-src http://ppa.launchpad.net/pitti/postgresql/ubuntu precise play

Secondly I did update the repository with the command

$ Sudo apt-get update

although there is an error

: W: GPG error: precise http://ppa.launchpad.net Release: The following signatures could not be verified Because The public key is not available: NO_PUBKEY 99B656EA8683D8A2

I added a way to overcome the apt-key, create a folder Key1 contains the code on the link below
code key1

then I run the command

$ Sudo apt-key add / directory / key1


I tried to update the back third repository

$ Sudo apt-get update


four I try to run the following command to install pgadmin3 vs. 1.20.0

$ Sudo apt-get install pgadmin3

yet installed fixed vs. 1.18.0
how do I fix it?

Best Answer

That is because, as mentioned in the PPA page, the PPA is deprecated and will NOT receive ANY UPDATES any more. The 'latest' version available in that PPA is 1.18.1-1.

If you want the latest version, checkout the repository maintained by The PostgreSQL Global Development Group (PGDG). In short,

Create /etc/apt/sources.list.d/pgdg.list and put the following contents:

deb http://apt.postgresql.org/pub/repos/apt/ precise-pgdg main

Import repository key, update and install the packages:

sudo apt-get install wget ca-certificates
wget --quiet -O - https://www.postgresql.org/media/keys/ACCC4CF8.asc | sudo apt-key add -
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade
sudo apt-get install postgresql-9.4 pgadmin3

There is also a shell script that will automate repository setup.
