Speed up installing software on Ubuntu
By default Ubuntu uses only one connection for downloading packages. You can easily speed it up by downloading through multiple connections. Each connection downloads its own part of the package. At the moment there are two front-ends for apt which can do that. They are apt-fast and nala.
Install apt-fast wrapper for apt-get. It is based on aria2.
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:apt-fast/stable sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install apt-fast
sudo apt-fast install package_name sudo apt-fast remove package_name sudo apt-fast update sudo apt-fast upgrade
apt-fast config can be edited:
sudo $EDITOR /etc/apt-fast.conf
