Im trying to mine ETH on AWS for learning pourpouses folowwing this tutorial

After I ran these comands to install geth:

sudo apt-get install software-properties-common
sudo add-apt-repository -y ppa:ethereum/ethereum-qt
sudo add-apt-repository -y ppa:ethereum/ethereum
sudo add-apt-repository -y ppa:ethereum/ethereum-dev
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install ethereum

and ran "geth" (no arguments)

it is producing the output bellow - which is very different from the one on the tutorial (and other tutorials I've seen). Am I doing something wrong? If yes, what? If not, can you help me interpret the outut? The ~/.ethereum/geth$ folder is already 25Gb - I presume thats where the chain lives, right?

enter image description here
