Go to and click on Xenial for Ubuntu 16.04. This takes you here: Then click on amd64 and you are here: Where it says:

If you are running Ubuntu, it is strongly suggested to use a package

instead of doing so manually via this website.

So instead of installing manually, use:

$ sudo apt install mpich
