Somehow, I am unable to install from this location:

bash <(curl -L https://install-geth.ethereum.org)  

getting the error below:

error unable to install geth


error screenshot

  • Might be some permission issues, or the ppa is not updated. Try apt-get update and then install.

Ubuntu 12.4 is not supported by the Ethereum repositories. Only:

  • trusty/14.4
  • utopic/14.10
  • vivid/15.4
  • wily/15.10

However, since you are on azure, you can install the blockchain as a service solutions which should also include a geth node.

  • thank you, yes finally I had used azure blockchain as a service
