I went to spend a bit of time with Go today, and attempted to update go from 1.03 to 1.1. I tried:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:gophers/go
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install golang-stable
But this resulted in nothing; still 1.03. I went to the PPA page for Go and saw version 1.1, but it was not showing up on my local box. Perplexed, I started poking around and found the package details page for golang-stable. The build had failed on the 15th and it hasn’t been updated since.
So, it’s simple enough to build from source:
sudo apt-get build-dep golang-stable
dpkg -i ../golang-stable*.deb
And now I have the newer version. Hopefully the build will be fixed when the package is published next and I won’t have to do this again.
