Some people call me a karma whore, I only ask for 10 points if you like my answer and 15 if I happen to get it correct.

This is because in step 8 you are instructed to download from master and not from the 8.0 branch.  Since July 7 odoo has forked 8,0 to be its own entity.  Change step 8 to this:

wget -O- https://raw.githubusercontent.com/odoo/odoo/8.0/odoo.py | python

And no, Version 8.0 stable does not exist yet.  As of today, only 8.0 RC1 (Release Candidate) is available. You can read my post on the current status of v8.0 stable release.

In step 8 (As Stephen suggests below) you can use

wget -O- https://raw.githubusercontent.com/odoo/odoo/8.0/odoo.py | python
instead of
wget -O- https://raw.githubusercontent.com/odoo/odoo/master/odoo.py | python
in order to download version 8.0

Version 8.0, as you can see here:
version_info = (8, 0, 0, RELEASE_CANDIDATE, 1)
is currently marked as a Release Candidate and now exists in a separate branch.

Now that we have a release candidate for 8.0 version the developers already started working on the 9.0 version which is currently on the branch 'master' and you can see that version 9.0 is still in 'ALPHA' state:
version_info = (9, 0, 0, ALPHA, 1)

How can-I install the V8.0 ?

See below my command,



olivier@chaumont02:~/odoo$ sudo python setup.py -v install --version 8.0
usage: setup.py [global_opts] cmd1 [cmd1_opts] [cmd2 [cmd2_opts] ...]
   or: setup.py --help [cmd1 cmd2 ...]
   or: setup.py --help-commands
   or: setup.py cmd --help

error: option --version not recognized

Just clone GitHub repo with --branch 8.0 instead of --version 8.0

Hello Byron Freire,

You can ge the 8.0 RC1 in just a one step if you are using Github ODOO branch.

After doing all the steps as shown in http://pulse7.net/openerp/install-odoo-ubuntu-14-04-github/ just go to the terminal and go to the odoo folder.

And then type following command:

$ path/odoo/git branch 8.0

$ path/odoo/git checkout 8.0

$ path/odoo/git pull origin 8.0

So with this steps you got a 8.0 RC1 branch into your system

Thank You
