Install Helm on Ubuntu 20.04

I am playing around with a homelab with Kubernetes and Ubuntu and thought I would add helm into the configuration. To start, I created an absolutely vanilla Ubuntu 20.04 Server instance with 8Gb of Memory and 30Gb of disk. In then installed some pre-requisite software:

  1. Docker
  2. Brew
  3. Kubectl

To install Helm run the following command:

brew install helm

To verify that helm is installed run the following command:

helm version

And it should return something similar to following:

version.BuildInfo{Version:"v3.8.0", GitCommit:"d14138609b01886f544b2025f5000351c9eb092e", GitTreeState:"clean", GoVersion:"go1.17.6"}
