How to install Ansible in Ubuntu 22.10

Today we’re talking about how to install Ansible in Ubuntu 22.10 Kinetic Kudu. 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 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. At the moment the installation of Ansible using the PPA repository is not available. Please bear in mind that adding an additional repository has a different quality assurance of software.
