The installation is quite simple, provided you are logged in as the root user. If you are not logged in as root, you may need to precede each command with ‘sudo’ in order to obtain the necessary privileges.

- The same instructions can be followed for Ubuntu 18.04, 16.04, and any other Debian-based distribution.
