This question already has an answer here:

What is the reason that by using sudo apt install texlive-full I only get TexLive version.2015, even though the newer versions such as 2016 and 2017 are out?

I am actually trying to install Texlive 2016.

Unfortunately Ubuntu 16.04 only ships the older version of TexLive. However for Ubuntu 16.04 you can install TexLive 2016 by adding the following PPA:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:jonathonf/texlive-2016
sudo apt-get update

and then installing TexLive as usual. Bear in mind that the same gentleman has separate PPAs with TexLive 2015 and 2017 also available for Ubuntu 16.04...
