On Ubuntu, when I do
vim --version in the terminal I get:
VIM - Vi IMproved 8.1 (2018 May 18, compiled Jan 6 2019 14:05:44)
Included patches: 1-699
However, when I do
gvim --version I get:
VIM - Vi IMproved 8.0 (2016 Sep 12, compiled Apr 10 2018 21:31:58)
Included patches: 1-1453
In trying to update the Vim version underneath my gvim installation, I thought it would be as simple as re-installing gvim with
sudo apt-get install gvim. However, that gives me:
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information... Done
Package gvim is a virtual package provided by:
You should explicitly select one to install.
E: Package 'gvim' has no installation candidate
That is, only the gvim version that I already have installed appears as available to me. At the official page I found mentions of how to install gvim8.1 for Windows, but not for Linux.
So, how could I update gvim to 8.1? Thanks!
