Percona-release no longer works

I have installed mysql 8.0 percona server on amazon linux 2 many of times in the past. But today when I try and install the percona-release tool I get this error:

Loaded plugins: extras_suggestions, langpacks, priorities, update-motd
percona-release-latest.noarch.rpm | 20 kB 00:00:00
Examining /var/tmp/yum-root-435dAU/percona-release-latest.noarch.rpm: percona-release-1.0-27.noarch
/var/tmp/yum-root-435dAU/percona-release-latest.noarch.rpm: does not update installed package.
Error: Nothing to do

Not sure what happened here, is anyone else running into this type of problem?

did you followed the same, please check Installing Percona Toolkit — Percona Toolkit Documentation

It seems the package is already installed according to this error message.

Try running percona-release and see if it responds.

I am having the most Monday, Tuesday ever. I must have been on another server before I jumped to this one. Thanks for the quick reply.

please do not forget to enable correct repo
ps80 - for percona server for mysql
pdps-8.0 - percona distribution for mysql

what is the difference between percona server for mysql and percona distribution for mysql. Or are they the same thing?


“percona distribution for mysql” is percona mysql + extra addons that we certify and support.

“percona server for mysql” is just percona mysql, nothing extra, just the base.
