Install Latest Version of Deluge on Ubuntu 20.04 Desktop from PPA

Ubuntu 20.04 software repository includes Deluge 2.0.3. However, when a newer version comes out, it would take some time for the Ubuntu team to update it. To ensure you get the newest version as soon as possible, you need to install it from the official Deluge PPA. Open up a terminal window, then run the following 3 commands one at a time.

sudo apt install software-properties-common

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:deluge-team/stable

sudo apt install deluge


This PPA also works on other Linux distributions that are based on Ubuntu such as Linux Mint and Elementary OS. If you already have deluge installed, then the above commands will update your deluge to the latest version. Don’t worry, your existing torrents will be fine.
