Installation on Debian 11 (Bullseye)

It’s been awhile since I have had to install Percona XtraDB Cluster and now it looks like there is a new process using percona-release. Here is what I am doing:

=== Step 1: Install percona-release ===

https://www.percona.com/doc/percona-repo-config/installing.html

# apt-get install -y wget gnupg2 curl lsb-release
# wget https://repo.percona.com/apt/percona-release_latest.generic_all.deb
# dpkg -i percona-release_latest.generic_all.deb
# apt-get update

=== Step 2: Enable Percona repositories ===

[See link for step 2 in next post]

Had to use the testing repositories since the packages didn’t seem to be available otherwise. (As a side note, the short product codes are not actually correct.)

# percona-release enable pxc-57 testing
# percona-release enable pxb-24 testing
# apt-get update

=== Step 3: Install Percona XtraDB Cluster ===

[See link for step 3 in next post]

# apt-get install percona-xtradb-cluster-57

And then I get the following error.

The following packages have unmet dependencies:
percona-xtradb-cluster-server-5.7 : Depends: qpress but it is not installable
E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages.

I browsed through the repos but there doesn’t seem to be an installable package for bullseye.

Appreciate any help!

New users are limited in the number of links they can post so here are the additional links.

Looks like qpress is in the tools package so I tried installing that, but got the same error.

# percona-release enable tools testing (also tried experimental)

Some packages could not be installed. This may mean that you have
requested an impossible situation or if you are using the unstable
distribution that some required packages have not yet been created
or been moved out of Incoming.
The following information may help to resolve the situation:

Hi @tkcent
Thanks for your report.
The issue has been fixed and now it is possible to install XtraDB Cluster from pxc-57 repo

I added qpress using the following command and was able to install, configure and connect the database to a cluster running on Debian 9 (Stretch).

# percona-release enable tools testing

Thanks so much!
