Is there a simple way to install Percona Server 8.0 on Ubuntu 19.04/19.10 ?

StalinkoStalinko Current User Role Contributor
I have 2 Ubuntu servers with OS versions 19.04 (disco) and 19.10 (eoan).
This instruction ( says that only Ubuntu 16.04 and Ubuntu 18.04 are supported.
I tried to install it nevertheless. At Ubuntu 19.10 I failed at 1st step:
because this file doesn't exist.
For Ubuntu 19.04 it surprisingly exists, but then the next command:
sudo percona-release setup ps80
Throws an error:
Err:12 eoan Release  404  Not Found [IP: 80]Get:13 eoan/main Sources [1,025 B]Get:14 eoan/main amd64 Packages [1,121 B]Reading package lists... DoneE: The repository ' eoan Release' does not have a Release file.N: Updating from such a repository can't be done securely, and is therefore disabled by default.
Then I decided to try to compile from source, but it looks beyond my unix knowledge, so many strange parameters which I must specify myself.
Are there any simple ways to install PS8.0 at the newest Ubuntu servers?

    Thanks @"lorraine.pocklington"
    Nope, I didn't know Ubuntu 19 has short term support. That's so weird :(
    Actually I was able to get a solution. Just downloaded latest packages from
    They were designed for Ubuntu 18 but installed successfully at 19.10. However I didn't see any speed boost in my case, the speed was even a little bit worse than with MySQL 8.0 so I decided to rollback to MySQL Server. That's most likely because my server serves just 1 user and performs isolated heavy calculations. It seems that those who develop DB servers are aimed mostly at environments with a lot of users making light queries.

    Thanks for the response... I updated my reply a little as I misinterpreted what I was told. We DO support Ubuntu but not those specific versions. I wonder if there's anyone has any suggestions... I might try one of our frequent posters see if they want to contribute... :)

    @Stalinko , you are correct that much more attention is paid to high-concurrency workloads, at the expense of low-concurrency or single connection. Mark Callaghan wrote several interesting posts on this topic:
    That said:
    • Did you use exactly the same configuration?
    • What is exactly slower with Percona Server?

    @Federico Razzoli thanks for the link. After reading this I started to realise I'm moving in back direction... Instead of upgrading my server I should degraded it to 5.6 and get really notable speed boost.
    Regards your questions:
    >Did you use exactly the same configuration?
    Yes. I have my own config. And between tests I only replaced database server software without changing the data and configs.
    >What is exactly slower with Percona Server?
    Well it would require a serious investigation, but I'm short of time. I just ran a bunch of my heavy and semi-heavy scripts and compared the times for different installations. Percona was like 10% slower on all the scripts. So I decided it's just not a good match for my personal case.

    @Stalinko I don't suggest to downgrade. MySQL 5.6 "end of life" is planned for February next year. This means that bugs of any type will not be fixed after that date.
