Ubuntu apt dist-upgrade wants to remove Percona from our server

ofriasofrias ContributorInactive User Role Novice

It looks like something is broken in the repos because apt dist-upgrade wants to delete our Percona cluster server packages:

    Can you please provide more information on what's been done before this? It looks like you've upgraded from xenial to bionic and that you're trying to upgrade pxc now as well?

    Thanks for your reply. The server was initially installed with Ubuntu 16.04 Xenial and Percona Cluster, and updated to Bionic a few months ago. I have been running apt update and dist-upgrade more or less weekly without any problem. And today I have found this issue.

    On xenial packages require libcurl3 and on bionic libcurl4 package, and it looks like apt can't do automatic upgrade.

    I've logged for this issue. Current workaround is to remove the xenial pxc packages and install bionic (instead of running dist-upgrade).

    I really don't feel safe removing Percona package from one our production servers, I am afraid I can lose some configuration or data. I prefer to wait until the deb is fixed to do the standard dist-upgrade.
