Unable to install xtrabackup on Ubuntu Hirsute

First I tried the recommended method from repository …

wget https://repo.percona.com/apt/percona-release_latest.$(lsb_release -sc)_all.deb
--2021-08-12 09:01:48--  https://repo.percona.com/apt/percona-release_latest.hirsute_all.deb
Resolving repo.percona.com (repo.percona.com)...,

HTTP request sent, awaiting response... 404 Not Found
2021-08-12 09:01:49 ERROR 404: Not Found.

Next I followed the instructions to download the package …

sudo dpkg -i ./percona-xtrabackup-80_8.0.4-1.stretch_amd64.deb

Hi @JohnShep
Ubuntu 21.04 is not in the list of supported platforms by Percona that’s why we haven’t created packages for it.
Here you can find the list of supported platforms: Percona Release Lifecycle Overview
You can try to use binary tarball in order to get it work on Ubuntu 21.04
