I have a raspberry pi which has the latest raspbian os. If I install ruby in it using sudo apt-get install ruby-full, ruby 2.5 version is installed. I have another raspberry pi which is running the older raspbian os. If I run the same above command in it, ruby 2.3 version is installed.

How can I update the 2.3 version to 2.5. Please help. Thanks

Here is the response of cat /etc/os-release of my older raspbian os

PRETTY_NAME="Raspbian GNU/Linux 9 (stretch)"
NAME="Raspbian GNU/Linux"
VERSION="9 (stretch)"
