I have vim version: 2:7.4.052-1ubuntu3 installed.

How do I update to the latest version using the terminal?

To get the latest vim updates run the following commands:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:pkg-vim/vim-daily
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade

You should know also that the latest means not always the most stable ones.

This is the latest version available with your version of Ubuntu. If you would like to upgrade to the latest upstream version you will need to isntall it manually from the upstream sources. You can find out how to do that here: http://www.vim.org/mercurial.php
