I am using Ubuntu 18.04, and I need to install Visual Studio Code in my machine i tried:
sudo snap install --classic vscode
but it didn't work.
To install Visual Studio Code Ubuntu 18.04, ust press Ctrl+Alt+T on your keyboard to open Terminal. When it opens, run the command(s) below:
sudo apt update sudo apt install software-properties-common apt-transport-https wget wget -q https://packages.microsoft.com/keys/microsoft.asc -O- | sudo apt-key add - sudo add-apt-repository "deb [arch=amd64] https://packages.microsoft.com/repos/vscode stable main" sudo apt install code
18.04 version, the following one-line terminal code works well.
sudo snap install code --classic
In addition to Mitch's answer:
When downloaded, you can double-click the .deb file which will open the Ubuntu Software Center and let you install vscode using a graphical interface.
