Is there a package manager for Linux that is similar to Homebrew for Mac?
I know a tool named
yum, but this tool's dependency package is not the latest version. Some code does not work.

It really depends on which distribution you are using, if it is Debian based (Ubuntu, etc) then apt is the standard. If you use a redhat based distro (CentOS, Fedora) then you would normally use yum. There are others too. Do some research. A quick google returned this result which looks quite helpful: http://library.linode.com/using-linux/package-management
