Install or Upgrade or Uninstall VSCODE in Ubuntu 20.04

We can install the Vscode in the below two ways.


Installation Method 1:

Run the below command to install the VScode.

sudo snap install --classic code

This method will upgrade Vscode automatically when it finds a new version.


Installation Method 2:

We need to download the .deb file for the below link.

https://code.visualstudio.com/download


Then go to the downloaded directory, then run the below command.

sudo dpkg -i code_1.56.1-1620296372_amd64.deb

After successfully run the above command, we can see the Vscode in the app search.


We need to follow the same steps for the upgrade as well.


Uninstall Vscode

We need to run the below command to uninstall the Vscode.

$ sudo dpkg --purge code

Terminal Output:

I hope it helps. Thanks.
