Which Percona Server Version will be available for Ubuntu 20.04

swickswick EntrantCurrent User Role Novice

we use Percona Server 5.5 and 5.7 for our Ubuntu 18.04 systems.
Currently we are preparing our Ansible Deployment for 20.04 but there is no Repo for Percona 5.5 and 5.7 for 20.04 yet ( or I didn't find it)

Using the 18.04 repo in 20.04 fails because of libreadline dependencies.

Will there be releases for 20.04 or do we have to go with Percona 8.0 ?

    Hmm, this is so unfortunate. We have a bit of a bit container for testing which includes Percona 5.7 and would like to add 20.04 so we can prepare for upgrades, unfortunately this seems impossible at the moment :(

    Percona-Server-5.7 packages are available for Ubuntu 20.04.
    Here is one of the packages:

    In order to get this packages for your system you should install percona-release package, enable `original` repository(it is enabled by default after the installation) and you will be able to install Percona-Server-5.7 packages.

    sudo dpkg -i percona-release_latest.focal_all.deb
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get install percona-server-server-5.7

    As for Percona-Server-5.5 it is EOL that is why there are no packages for Ubuntu 20.04

    Is there any plan to release a 5.6 install for Ubuntu 20.04?
