Dependency problem percona-server-5.7-dbg depends on percona-server-server-5.7

I have been attempting (unsuccessfully) to install percona-server-server-5.7 on Ubuntu 16.04.3 LTS.
Installed from “release-5.7.19-17-re19a6b7b73f-xenial-x86_64-bundle.tar”, I ran “sudo dpkg -i *.deb”. This gave me a pre-dependency problem: “debsums is not installed”. So I installed debsums and ran “apt-get -f install” and right after the line: “Setting up percona-server-server-5.7 (5.7.19-17-1.xenial) …” I get the following error:
dpkg: error processing package percona-server-server-5.7 (–configure):
subprocess installed post-installation script returned error exit status 1
dpkg: dependency problems prevent configuration of percona-server-5.7-dbg:
percona-server-5.7-dbg depends on percona-server-server-5.7 (= 5.7.19-17-1.xenial); however:
Package percona-server-server-5.7 is not configured yet.

You don’t really need to install the *-dbg files if you’re testing PS. Try the following steps:

apt install debsums (assuming you’re done with this)

Install *common and *client packages first:
dpkg -i percona-server-client-5.7_5.7.19-17-1.xenial_amd64.deb percona-server-common-5.7_5.7.19-17-1.xenial_amd64.deb

Then install the *server package, it will require more dependencies so run the last command below.
dpkg -i percona-server-server-5.7_5.7.19-17-1.xenial_amd64.deb
apt-get -f install

Thank you, that did the trick :slight_smile:
