This question already has an answer here:
What's the easiest way to install a list of packages with latest version?
Using apt-cache policy or Ubuntu software center, package xxxx only has version 1.1 In Pypi (https://pypi.python.org/pypi/), the latest version is 1.5. I do not fancy installing from the download file (.tar.gz). Why isn't the latest version reflected in the Ubuntu software center?
