This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

  • For the Ubuntu repository version of chrome install 'chromium-browser'. This is not exactly the same browser you will get by installing the deb published by the chrome site. For reasons I will not defend I prefer the version released through the chrome website. – Stephen Boston Jan 2 '18 at 17:39
  • As commented above, Google Chrome is NOT in the repositories but Chromium is and you can use that. If you really want Chrome you can conveniently install the DEB file provided by Google or, in terminal, add the Google Chrome's repository, then install the desired version, exactly as mentioned in the answer below that, BTW, you should've accepted already. That's how a Q&A site works. – user692175 Jan 6 '18 at 3:55

I think you didn't add the google-chrome repository to Ubuntu. open your terminal and then type:

wget -q -O - https://dl-ssl.google.com/linux/linux_signing_key.pub | sudo apt-key add - 

then after that to add the repository, type this :

sudo sh -c 'echo "deb [arch=amd64] http://dl.google.com/linux/chrome/deb/ stable main" >> /etc/apt/sources.list.d/google.list'

after that update your system,type this in terminal :

sudo apt update

last, to install google chrome, type this :

sudo apt install google-chrome-**<version>**

where version is beta or stable or release

for example :

sudo apt install google-chrome-stable

I prefer to use the stable version.
