I guess this question should be asked to Ubuntu packagers.

If no package is available, you can easily build SageMath 8.9 from source: install first the following Ubuntu packages, which are prerequisites for the build:

Then, In a console, do

git clone
cd sage
MAKE="make -j8" make
edit flag offensive delete link more


I managed to build it, but I can't install it to call sage from anywhere.

make install -j 4 gives this output after building everything

make[3]: Leaving directory '/home/siriak/Downloads/sage/build/make' make '/home/siriak/Downloads/sage/local/etc/sage-started.txt' make[3]: Entering directory '/home/siriak/Downloads/sage/build/make' if [ -z "$SAGE_INSTALL_FETCH_ONLY" ]; then \ cd /home/siriak/Downloads/sage/src && source bin/sage-env && \ sage-logger -p 'time make sage' '/home/siriak/Downloads/sage/logs/pkgs/sagelib-8.9.log'; \ fi [sagelib-8.9] cd . && export \ [sagelib-8.9] SAGE_ROOT=/doesnotexist \

It doesn't fit in comment

Do you have any ideas on how to install it system-wide?

The link with prerequisites is has expired. I found (this) list (but did not try it).
