I can see that Ubuntu 18.04 “bionic” is not yet officially supported - there is however a working .deb repository available so it seems like it is very close to be supported?
Installing XtraDB cluster on Ubuntu 18.04 works without any problems following the suggested procedure (below) - however uninstall breaks.
wget https://repo.percona.com/apt/percona-release_0.1-5.$(lsb_release -sc)_all.deb
dpkg -i percona-release_0.1-5.$(lsb_release -sc)_all.deb
apt-get install percona-toolkit
apt-get install percona-xtradb-cluster-server
apt-get install xinetd
apt-get install python-pycurl
apt-get install python-mysqldb
With that, the single instance works - without problems it seems.

E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)
Solution / workaround:
Spawn a new server and don’t expect to be able to upgrade / uninstall.
Any idea when this may be resolved - Or what I may be doing wrong to cause this?
