APT Packages for Debian and Ubuntu
The primary distribution packages for Terraform are
.zip archives containing
single executable files that you can extract anywhere on your system. However,
for easier integration with configuration management tools and other systematic
system configuration strategies, we also offer package repositories for
Debian and Ubuntu systems, which allow you to install Terraform using the
apt install command or any other APT frontend.
If you are instead using Red Hat Enterprise Linux, CentOS, or Fedora, you might prefer to install Terraform from our Yum repositories.
Note: The APT repositories discussed on this page are generic HashiCorp repositories that contain packages for a variety of different HashiCorp products, rather than just Terraform. Adding these repositories to your system will, by default, therefore make several other non-Terraform packages available for installation. That might then mask some packages that are available for some HashiCorp products in the main Debian and Ubuntu package repositories.
Please follow the instructions in the Official Packaging Guide.
The HashiCorp APT server has packages only for the
architecture, which is also sometimes known as
There are no official packages available for other architectures, such as
arm64. If you wish to use Terraform on a non-
download a normal release
.zip file instead.
The HashiCorp APT server contains release repositories for a variety of supported distributions, which are outlined in the Official Packaging Guide.
The HashiCorp APT repositories contain multiple versions of Terraform, but
because the packages are all named
terraform it is impossible to install
more than one version at a time, and
apt install will default to selecting
the latest version.
It's often necessary to match your Terraform version with what a particular configuration is currently expecting. You can use the following command to see which versions are currently available in the repository index:
apt policy terraform
If your workflow requires using multiple versions of Terraform at the same
time, for example when working through a gradual upgrade where not all
of your configurations are upgraded yet, we recommend that you use the
.zip files instead of the APT packages, so you can install
multiple versions at once and then select which to use for each command you
As of Terraform 1.4.3, all published packages include a revision number by
default, starting with
-1. This change means that in the case that we need
to publish an updated package for any reason, installers can automatically
retrieve the latest revision. You can learn more about this packaging change
in the announcement.
You can install the latest revision for a particular version by including the
version in the
apt install command, as follows:
sudo apt install terraform=1.4.4-*
Terraform 1.4.2 and earlier did not include a revision number for the first revision, so you can use the following pattern to install a specific version:
sudo apt install terraform=1.4.0
