Pinned topic CouchDB on Ubuntu ppc64el

‏2014-08-20T18:23:45Z |

Hi all,

I'm trying to install CouchDB on an Ubuntu VM. I'm running into an issue with the repository. Here is what I'm doing:

 

$ apt-get update

...

$ sudo apt-get install couchdb-common couchdb
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree       
Reading state information... Done
couchdb-common is already the newest version.
Some packages could not be installed. This may mean that you have
requested an impossible situation or if you are using the unstable
distribution that some required packages have not yet been created
or been moved out of Incoming.
The following information may help to resolve the situation:

The following packages have unmet dependencies:
 couchdb : Depends: couchdb-bin (>= 1.5.0-0ubuntu1) but it is not installable
E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages.


$ sudo apt-get install couchdb-bin
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree       
Reading state information... Done
Package couchdb-bin is not available, but is referred to by another package.
This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or
is only available from another source
However the following packages replace it:
  couchdb-common couchdb

E: Package 'couchdb-bin' has no installation candidate
 

 

So "couchdb" won't install without couchdb-bin, but couchdb-bin has been replaced by 'couchdb' and 'couchdb-common'. 'couchdb-common' installs ok on its own.

Any thoughts? Is this a repo/package build bug? Or am I an idiot?

    You're not an idiot, you appear to have found a bug! :)

    I've filed the bug in Ubuntu here if you want to follow along its progress: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/couchdb/+bug/1359738

    Thanks Jorge for opening the bug at Canonical. This is the right way to get it fixed.

    As I commented in the launchpad bug, the package couchdb is generating 3 other packages: couchdb-common, couchdb-bin and couchdb. The problem is that couchdb-bin was not compiled for ppc64el, which is causing this breakage in the archive.

    The problem was fixed by Canonical, and couchdb-bin is already available on ppc64el, as shown in the buld log:

    Hi Jason - Were you able to get this installed/built on Trusty?  Thanks!

    I fully patched and updated my 14.04 OS and I still get the same error at the moment.

    I don't see couchdb-bin in the repository yet.. Has this been published yet..?
