Difference between vim and vi in ​​Ubuntu

By default on Ubuntu, vi is assigned the editor vim-tiny, which limits the functionality of vim.

In the edit mode of vi, the up / down / left / right keys cannot be used and it is displayed as "A B C D" because vi is vim-tiny.

In this case, install vim as described above and vim will be assigned to vi.

(Confirmed on Ubuntu 18)
