On ubuntu 18.04 I'm looking to install via apt the container software Singularity in version 3.3 or above. However ubuntu's default repo universe offers Singularity (as the package singularity-container) only in version version 2.4.

Is there another repo for ubuntu 18.04 LTS I can add which installs Singularity version 3.3 or higher?

  • You can always just compile from sources. It's relatively easy and well explained on the official Sylab website. Ask a follow question if you hit errors! Dec 13 '20 at 18:28

Not really an answer, but my solution:

Install Centos 7 instead if ubuntu 18.04. This has Singularity 3.5.3 on the EPEL repository available.
