In order to install the latest version of Vim, use the following

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:jonathonf/vim
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install vim vim-gtk

As there was a major update to Vim in 2016, it's better to get the latest version via the repo above. In addition, installing vim-gtk allows you to be able to access content from the clipboard (via Ctrl-C)

Now you will be able to use "+p to paste the contents of the clipboard.
