This question already has an answer here:

Now that gcc 4.9 is officially released, is there an easy and convenient way to install it on Ubuntu 14.04 through the package manager (ie. apt-get)?

I would also appreciate information on how to properly configure my system to use it as its compiler.

I was hoping for a more convenient answer now that the release is official. –  Nicolas Louis Guillemot Apr 22 at 16:05
    
That is, the process in that link seems error-prone. –  Nicolas Louis Guillemot Apr 22 at 16:06

No, there isn't. Check askubuntu.com/questions/151283/… to know why –  Braiam Apr 22 at 22:37
    
That's a shame. I was hoping for some kind of quick and convenient way to upgrade to the experimental version. Do you think I should leave this question open, or should I accept mohtaw's answer? –  Nicolas Louis Guillemot Apr 22 at 22:48
