PS MySQL 8.0.30-22 on Ubuntu 22.04 Fails to install repository packages

Hello,

While I was trying to install the new repository packages it failed with the following error:

sudo dpkg -i percona-release_latest.$(lsb_release -sc)_all.deb
Selecting previously unselected package percona-release.
(Reading database … 112177 files and directories currently installed.)
Preparing to unpack percona-release_latest.jammy_all.deb …
Unpacking percona-release (1.0-27.generic) …
Setting up percona-release (1.0-27.generic) …
dpkg: error processing package percona-release (–install):
installed percona-release package post-installation script subprocess returned error exit status 2
Errors were encountered while processing:
percona-release

Please help!!

Steve

Hello @Tiga,
Ubuntu 22.04 Jammy is not on our supported operating systems list at this time for the repo tool. Percona Release Lifecycle Overview I know our engineering teams are working hard to get support for 22.04 out as fast as possible.

You can download all our packages manually for Jammy here: Download Percona Server for MySQL 8.0

Hi @Tiga,

Does it work if you install gnupg2 curl packages before you install percona-release package as described in the docs?

I’ve tried installing in the VirtualBox machine and it worked ok:

==> Please run "apt-get update" to apply changes
Specified repository is not supported for current operating system!
The percona-release package now contains a percona-release script that can enable additional repositories for our newer products.

For example, to enable the Percona Server 8.0 repository use:

  percona-release setup ps80

Note: To avoid conflicts with older product versions, the percona-release setup command may disable our original repository for some products.

It only has a exit status 2…

Can you provide any more details on how to reproduce it?
Are you using VM, Docker image, or something else? Was anything else installed before this package?

Thanks,
Hrvoje

This is on my web hosting platform and probably a VM. Before doing the PS installation, I do not have any new package installed, just a routine apt update. I just copy and paste the procedures from PS web site to start the installation. Nothing unusual…

Hi @Tiga
I tried to reproduce your issue but without success. So let’s investigate it togeather!
What I suggest you doing:

cd /var/lib/dpkg/info/
bash -x percona-release.postinst configure

Once it is done please provide here for investigation

@Evgeniy_Patlan ,

Here is what I get:

  • SUPRESSOR=‘> /dev/null 2>&1’
  • OLDREPOFILE=/etc/apt/sources.list.d/percona-release.list
  • ‘[’ ‘’ = 1 ‘]’
  • set -e
  • case “$1” in
  • eval ‘/usr/bin/apt-key add /etc/apt/trusted.gpg.d/percona-keyring.gpg > /dev/null 2>&1’
    ++ /usr/bin/apt-key add /etc/apt/trusted.gpg.d/percona-keyring.gpg
