Modifications:

  • delete /usr/local/go if it exists
  • does NOT add the GOPATH if it's already there
  • optionally delete the downloaded archive (ctr+c to skip)
  • chained with && so that the script exits early on failure

forked gist:

cd /tmp
fileName='go1.17.7.linux-armv6l.tar.gz'
wget -c https://golang.org/dl/$fileName && sudo rm -rfv /usr/local/go && sudo tar -C /usr/local -xvf $fileName

grep -q 'GOPATH=' ~/.bashrc || cat >> ~/.bashrc << 'EOF'
export GOPATH=$HOME/go
export PATH=/usr/local/go/bin:$PATH:$GOPATH/bin
EOF

source ~/.bashrc

read -p "Press any key to delete downloaded file: $fileName..."
rm -rf "$fileName"
