Extract the archive you downloaded into /usr/local, creating a Go tree in /usr/local/go.
For example, run the following as root or through sudo: (Change archive name as you need)
rm -rf /usr/local/go && tar -C /usr/local -xzf go1.16.6.linux-amd64.tar.gz
Important: Above step will remove a previous installation at /usr/local/go, if any, prior to extracting. Please back up any data before proceeding.
Add /usr/local/go/bin to the PATH environment variable.
You can do this by adding the following line to your $HOME/.profile or /etc/profile (for a system-wide installation):
export PATH=$PATH:/usr/local/go/bin
Verify that you've installed Go by opening a command prompt and typing the following command:
$ go version
