How to install the latest version of Elixir?

I’m using Linux Mint 18.3 and after following the installation guide from, when I checked the version I saw Interactive Elixir (1.1.0-dev), shouldn’t that be 1.6?

Also prior to that I installed esl-erlang but some packages were not supported:

The following packages have unmet dependencies:
esl-erlang : Depends: libssl0.9.8 but it is not installable_
Depends: libwxbase2.8-0 but it is not installable_
Depends: libwxgtk2.8-0 but it is not installable_

Did any of you encounter that too?


I suggest You to try installing Erlang/Elixir with asdf.

It is a general package manager, working well with Erlang/Elixir.


(+1) asdf, made my life way better
