Golang 1.11.x PPA for Ubuntu 18.04 LTS

How to install golang-1.11.x to /usr/lib/go-1.11/ and
make it default (by making a symbolic links like /usr/bin/go -> ../lib/go-1.11/bin/go):

sudo apt update
sudo apt install software-properties-common
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:hnakamur/golang-1.11
sudo apt update
sudo apt install golang-go golang-1.11-doc
(golang-1.11-doc is needed by the godoc command)

Known probolem for godoc: godoc prints the error "godoc: corpus fstree is nil"
As a workaround, please run the commands below.
sudo cp -pr /usr/share/go-1.11/src /usr/lib/go-1.11/src.copy

godoc in golang-golang-x-tools package is incompatible with this package since it looks for /usr/lib/go-1.10/src,
Please install godoc instead with the step written at

deb source repository:

* golang-1.11: https://github.com/hnakamur/golang-deb
* golang-1.11-race-detector-runtime: https://github.com/hnakamur/golang-1.11-race-detector-runtime-deb
* golang-defaults: https://github.com/hnakamur/golang-defaults-deb
