Percona server on ubuntu 22.04 jammy

I have tried to install Percona server MySQL 8 on ubuntu 22.04 (jammy) however it fails.
You can reproduce it with

docker run -it --entrypoint /bin/bash ubuntu:jammy
apt update
apt --fix-broken -y install wget curl lsb-release ca-certificates gnupg
wget$(lsb_release -sc)_all.deb
dpkg -i percona-release_latest.$(lsb_release -sc)_all.deb
apt update
percona-release setup ps80
apt install percona-server-server

You will get the error

E: Unable to locate package percona-server-server

Note: This does work on ubuntu 20.04 (focal) so ubuntu22.04 (jammy) in particular is misconfigured in your pipeline. After some investigation is seems that the “Packages” file is zero bytes which I suspect is the root cause. Link to file:

Hi Vahid,

The first available PS version for jammy is 8.0.30
Now it’s located in ps-80 testing repo only.

Hi Vadim,
Thank you for the answer. Do you have any estimation for when version 8.0.30 will be released in production?

Hi guys, you need to make this key information more findable. At least update this page: Percona Release Lifecycle Overview

This didn’t work initially on Linux Mint 21. But I worked to spoof lsb_release so it would show “jammy”.

When I try to install, it says:
The following packages will be REMOVED:
mysql-client-8.0 mysql-client-core-8.0 mysql-server-8.0 mysql-server-core-8.0

Is it safe to install? Will my current databases be safe?

When will proxysql2 be available?

Linux Mint isn’t in the list of supported platforms. So it might work incorrectly.
Proxysql package is available for jammy. As a part of distribution release it will be available in the upcoming 8.0.30 release.
If you want to have a standalone proxysql installation without PerconaServer for mysql on ubuntu Jammy you can enable proxysql repo:
sudo percona-release enable proxysql release && sudo apt update

When can we expect the 8.0.30 release? (and/or sign up for notifications)

Where is the documentation to confugre proxysql once it is installed?

I’d like to use ProxySQL to obfuscate sensitive data, like here: Obfuscate data from mysqldump with ProxySQL - ProxySQL
