Repo home page:
If you are installing for the first time just execute these commands(*):
sudo apt-get install software-properties-common sudo add-apt-repository ppa:bitcoin-abc/ppa sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install bitcoind bitcoin-qt
(*) if you already have a prev version of Bitcoin ABC just run:
sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get upgrade
If you are experiencing an error related to
libstdc++6version being not satisfied, look at this /u/abcbtc's comment that contains the fix:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ubuntu-toolchain-r/test -y sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install libstdc++-7-dev -y
If you are using Ubuntu 14.04 (Trusty) you also need to execute these commands before installing the Bitcoin ABC binaries:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:sickpig/boost sudo apt-get update
This is needed due the fact ABC bumped min version for libboost to 1.58.00 .
