How to Install Ansible on Ubuntu - How to setup Ansible on Ubuntu 16.0.4

Here are the steps for installing Ansible on Ubuntu 16.0.4:

The best way to install Ansible for Ubuntu is to add the project's PPA (personal package archive) to your system. you can do it by executing the below command:

Update Repository
sudo apt-add-repository -y ppa:ansible/ansible

then you need to refresh the package by executing the below command:
sudo apt-get update

Now you can install Ansible:
sudo apt-get install -y ansible

sudo apt install python-pip -y

Install Boto Framework
sudo pip install boto
(This is AWS SDK for python)
sudo pip install boto3
sudo apt-get install python-boto -y
pip list boto | grep boto (the above command should display below output)
Ignore warning in Red color.
