Debian/Ubuntu Repo doesn't work

Myself and my colleague have tried to install CrateDB from the Ubuntu and Debian instructions but it does not work. We don’t want to use Docker and the only way we have been able to try the database is to use the quick start script.

Posting this for advice or to let you know your documentation/install system has a problem.

My OS is Kubuntu 21.10 x86_64

Ign:9 $(lsb_release InRelease
Ign:10 impish InRelease
Err:11 $(lsb_release Release
  404  Not Found [IP: 443]
Err:12 impish Release
  404  Not Found [IP: 443]

We currently only support the LTS versions of Ubuntu (18 - Bionic Beaver / 20 -
Focal Fossa / 22 - Jammy Jellyfish), as we expect those to be used in a production environment.

an option might be to use the tarball directly:

This might also be an interesting read, if you want to run CrateDB on an unsupported Linux distro and set up a service:

Hi Randall,

you may be able to use the CrateDB package for Ubuntu Bionic Beaver in an ad hoc manner like:

dpkg -i crate_5.0.0-1~bionic_amd64.deb
systemctl start crate

However, Ubuntu Impish seems to be EOL [1], so you may want to consider upgrading to the next LTS version.

With kind regards,

  1. apt - Upgrade to 22.04 (impish Release no longer has a Release file) - Ask Ubuntu ↩︎
