It is sufficient to: sudo apt-get install tmux-next to get the latest version, which is atm v2.4
I did additional: sudo ln -s /usr/bin/tmux-next /usr/bin/tmux

I am doing an install on Ubuntu 16.04.1 LTS and tmux 2.1 is incompatibe with the project I am working with. Executing tmux_install.sh - tmux v2.3 installation steps for Ubuntu [various OS versions] (above) gets to sudo apt-get install -yqq tmux-next=2.3~20160913~bzr3547+20-1ubuntu1~ppa0~ubuntu16.04.1 then returns this error E: Version '2.3~20160913~bzr3547+20-1ubuntu1~ppa0~ubuntu16.04.1' for 'tmux-next' was not found

Any advice?

run one at a time.
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:pi-rho/dev
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install tmux-next=2.3~20161124~bzr3624+20-1ubuntu1~ppa0~ubuntu16.04.1

Or just use plain "tmux-next" as in sudo apt-get install tmux-next

For the latest version available in the launchpad repo, go to https://launchpad.net/~pi-rho/+archive/ubuntu/dev and look for the package name on the list for your Ubuntu release. It seems the latest "tmux-next" package as of writing of this message is actually version 2.4 even though the string for it is: 2.3~20170107~bzr3641+20-1ubuntu1~ppa0~ubuntu16.04.1

I ran this command to install:

sudo apt-get install tmux-next=2.320170128bzr3691+20-1ubuntu1ppa0ubuntu14.04.1

The command "tmux-next -V" produced this as output:

tmux-next master

I assume this is not the correct output value, so is there another method to determine the actual version number?
I am a total newbie to tmux.

currently, you must replace
2.320160913bzr3547+20-1ubuntu1ppa0ubuntu16.04.1
with:
2.320170419bzr3777+20-1ubuntu1ppa0ubuntu16.04.1
