You can either:

  1. download the source code and build it yourself;
  2. install the standard Wireshark package or packages for your Linux distribution, if your distribution has one;
  3. find some third-party package, such as an Ubuntu PPA for Wireshark.

The only download currently offered by the Wireshark project is the source download.

Major distributions will have it packaged as part of the standard packages.

Using your distributions package is a good idea to ensure it is kept up to date when security bugs are found.

Debian / Ubuntu

apt install wireshark

Fedora / RedHat

yum install wireshark

Search for a guide for your distribution and wireshark to ensure you configure user permissions correctly.
