I did all the steps, but localhost:9200 doesnt work, and when I do "sudo bin/elasticsearch -f" dont stop, and while this process is active, localhost:9200 response, but when I do ctrl + c to stop, goodbye.

Er, look, I'm sorry I'm a bit late. I've had the most ghastly time, all sorts of things cropping up at the last moment.\"", "text2" : "He seemed nervous of the expectant awed hush. He cleared his throat.", "text3" : "\"Er, how are we for time?\" he said, \"have I just got a min—\"", "text4" : "And so the Universe ended." } }

Now ES provides deb package, so just download from http://www.elasticsearch.org/download/ and install it.

Then service elasticsearch start should work.
