How to install Ansible in the latest Ubuntu 22.04.

Today we’re going to talk about the easier way to install and maintain Ansible inside Ubuntu 22.04 with the distribution tools. I’m Luca Berton and welcome to today’s episode of Ansible Pilot.

How to install Ansible in Ubuntu 22.04

Today we’re talking about how to install Ansible in Ubuntu 22.04 LTS Jammy Jellyfish. We’re going to see the easy way to install and maintain Ansible inside Ubuntu with the distribution tools. We are going to see how to install Ansible in two different ways. The first method to install Ansible is using the universe repository, the default that you get after installation. The main advantage of using the universe repository is that you don’t require any external repository. And the second method to install Ansible is using the PPA repository. Please bear in mind that adding an additional repository has a different quality assurance of software.

Repository: 'deb https://ppa.launchpadcontent.net/ansible/ansible/ubuntu/ jammy main'
Description:
Ansible is a radically simple IT automation platform that makes your applications and systems easier to deploy. Avoid writing scripts or custom code to deploy and update your applications— automate in a language that approaches plain English, using SSH, with no agents to install on remote systems.
