Here is how to install PostgreSQL on Ubuntu 20.04 in under 2 minutes:
Step 1 - Update the package list on your system
The first step is to update the package list on your system before proceeding to actual installation:
sudo apt update -y
apt update downloads the package lists from the repositories and updates
them to get information on the newest versions of packages and their
dependencies. It will do this for all repositories and PPAs.
Step 2 - Install PostgreSQL packages, CLI, and additional features
Execute the following command to install PostgreSQL packages, CLI and additional features:
sudo apt install -y postgresql postgresql-contrib postgresql-client
You have successfully installed PostgreSQL on your Ubuntu system. To ensure everything went as planned, you can execute the following command that will run the PostgreSQL server.
sudo dpkg --status postgresql
