I have followed with steps here from the link, it supports git 1.9.1. My ubuntu is 13.04

Step 1: Add the Official PPA provided by GIT
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:git-core/ppa

Step 2: Update the Repository
sudo apt-get update

Step 3: Install GIT 1.9.1
sudo apt-get install git

However, after I run sudo apt-get install git I get below result.

Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information... Done
git is already the newest version.

And then
git --version
git version

It's still the old version. Thanks in advance.

  • Since raring is not supported anymore,the package for raring has been removed from the ppa ppa:git-core/ppa.Your best bet would be saucy package. – Stormvirux Mar 28 '14 at 14:25

First of all you should keep in mind that Ubuntu 13.04 is now considered outdated and you'll never get more support or updates for that.

Second Ubuntu software channel usually keeps behind the real versions since it works on the stability so it doesn't update to the latest version. so to do that you have to add a third party repository as you have did, but as the output this means either the new repository does't contain the needed version
