Here is how to install Anaconda on your Ubuntu 20.04 system in under two minutes:

Step 1 - Download the installer

Download the Anaconda installer for Linux.

Step 2 - Install for python 3

Install anaconda for python 3 by running the following command:

bash ~/Downloads/Anaconda3-2020.05-Linux-x86_64.sh
Copied!

Replace the path with the actual path of the downloaded installer.

Step 3 - Licence Agreement

Press Enter to review the license agreement. Then press and hold Enter to scroll. Then enter yes to agree to the license agreement.

Then, use Enter to accept the default install location, use CTRL+C to cancel the installation, or enter another file path to specify an alternate installation directory. If you accept the default install location, the installer displays PREFIX=/home/<USER>/anaconda<2/3> and continues the installation. It may take a few minutes to complete.

Note: Official anaconda docs recommend you accept the default install location. Do not choose the path as /usr for the Anaconda/Miniconda installation.

The installer prompts you to choose whether to initialize Anaconda Distribution by running conda init. Enter yes.

The installer finishes and displays, Thank you for installing Anaconda!
