Script to update go version

Although Go installation it’s a pretty straight-forward process, it can be done even easier if a script is used to install and update your golang installation.

We are going to use update-golang script.

$ go version

go version go1.17.6 linux/arm64

$ git clone

$ go version

go version go1.18.2 linux/arm64

To finish the setup, the shell PATH should be updated.

  • The path ‘/usr/local/go/bin’ is added to PATH using ‘/etc/profile.d/’.
  • Only if needed, GOROOT is properly setup, also using ‘/etc/profile.d/’.
  • Alternatively, can be edited manually to .bashrc or .zshrc:
export GOROOT=/usr/local/go
export GOPATH=$HOME/go
export PATH=$GOPATH/bin:$GOROOT/bin:$PATH
