  • Official version of nginx for Ubuntu Precise is 1.1.19 but the latest available stable version is 1.2.2 (Changes), In this post I will present you how to update to the latest available version.

    vi /etc/apt/sources.list

    and add depending on your Ubuntu version either

    For Ubuntu 10.04 Lucid:

    deb http://nginx.org/packages/ubuntu/ lucid nginx
    deb-src http://nginx.org/packages/ubuntu/ lucid nginx

    For Ubuntu 12.04 Precise:

    deb http://nginx.org/packages/ubuntu/ precise nginx
    deb-src http://nginx.org/packages/ubuntu/ precise nginx

    Now you can run

    apt-get update

    When using the public nginx repository for Ubuntu, you’ll get this error

    W: GPG error: http://nginx.org lucid Release: The following signatures 
    couldn't be verified because the public key is not available: NO_PUBKEY ABF5BD827BD9BF62

    First of all this is only warning and you can ignore it, if you know what are you doing and in case you prefer to add public key, used for signing packages and repository, just run:

    gpg -a --export 7BD9BF62 |  sudo apt-key add -

    or

    wget http://nginx.org/packages/keys/nginx_signing.key
    cat nginx_signing.key | sudo apt-key add -

    apt-get update should now run fine, however after running an

    apt-get install nginx

    you may still get this kind of error:

    dpkg: error processing /var/cache/apt/archives/nginx_1.2.2-1~precise_amd64.deb (--unpack):
     trying to overwrite '/etc/logrotate.d/nginx', which is also in package nginx-common 1.1.19-1
    dpkg-deb: error: subprocess paste was killed by signal (Broken pipe)
    Errors were encountered while processing:
     /var/cache/apt/archives/nginx_1.2.2-1~precise_amd64.deb

    just remove nginx-common and retry

    apt-get remove nginx-common
