Sage not in repositories on ubuntu 17.10 and on download page I don't see version for Ubuntu newer than 16.04.
So, I should build Sage from source, right?
And if I will do it, could I add my compiled sage to the download page and Ubuntu repositories?

To get SageMath under Ubuntu, you could either

  • install the Debian package by running in a terminal:

    sudo apt install sagemath-jupyter

    (this should work under: Debian >= 9; Ubuntu 17.04; Ubuntu >= 18.04; unfortunately not in Ubuntu 17.10),

  • install SageMath binary for your Ubuntu system from the SageMath download page.

  • build from source,
  • install using Conda,
  • install using Docker.

Note that Ubuntu 18.04 was just released which makes it a good time to upgrade.

Building from source is a good way to get the latest version.

If you build from source, I would suggest building the latest development release, currently SageMath 8.2.rc4.

When SageMath 8.2 is released, it should be nearly identical to SageMath 8.2.rc4.

@Romuald_314 -- checking again, it turns out SageMath is not available through the Ubuntu package manager in Ubuntu 17.10. Edited my answer here, and posted similar answer to your other question.

What can I do if I don't have conda ?

Upgrade to Ubuntu 18.04 and, in a terminal, run

sudo apt install sagemath-jupyter
