But i have no idea how to install it. How to upgrade to python 3.7? Thanks.

The answer is


Try this if you are on ubuntu:

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install build-essential libpq-dev libssl-dev openssl libffi-dev zlib1g-dev
sudo apt-get install python3-pip python3.7-dev
sudo apt-get install python3.7

In case you don't have the repository and so it fires a not-found package you first have to install this:

sudo apt-get install -y software-properties-common
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:deadsnakes/ppa
sudo apt-get update

more info here: http://devopspy.com/python/install-python-3-6-ubuntu-lts/


On ubuntu you can add this PPA Repository and use it to install python 3.7: https://launchpad.net/~jonathonf/+archive/ubuntu/python-3.7

Or a different PPA that provides several Python versions is Deadsnakes: https://launchpad.net/~deadsnakes/+archive/ubuntu/ppa

See also here: https://askubuntu.com/questions/865554/how-do-i-install-python-3-6-using-apt-get (I know it says 3.6 in the url, but the deadsnakes ppa also contains 3.7 so you can use it for 3.7 just the same)

If you want "official" you'd have to install it from the sources from the site, get the code (which you already downloaded) and do this:

tar -xf Python-3.7.0.tar.xz
cd Python-3.7.0
./configure
make
sudo make install        <-- sudo is required.

This might take a while
