How to install kubectl on Ubuntu


You want to run the Kubernetes kubectl command on Ubuntu but you see an error message like this:

command not found: kubectl


Install kubectl using snap:

sudo snap install kubectl --classic

After this command has finished installing kubectl, in most cases you can use it immediately. In case you still get the command not found: kubectl error message, run $SHELL to reload your shell and check if /snap/bin is in your $PATH environment variable.
