    vi /etc/apt/sources.list, add the following two lines:

    deb jessie main
    deb-src jessie main

  2. gibbonyang says:

    add-apt-repository ‘deb jessie main’
    —— it works for me:
    Accept this solution? [Y/n/q/?] n
    The following actions will resolve these dependencies:

    Install the following packages:
    1) galera-3 [25.3.19-jessie ()]
    2) libmariadbclient18 [10.1.20+maria-1~jessie ()]
    3) libmysqlclient18 [10.1.20+maria-1~jessie ()]
    4) mariadb-client-core-10.1 [10.1.20+maria-1~jessie ()]
    5) mariadb-server-core-10.1 [10.1.20+maria-1~jessie ()]

    Keep the following packages at their current version:
    6) mariadb-client [Not Installed]
    7) mariadb-client-10.1 [Not Installed]
    8) mariadb-server [Not Installed]
    9) mariadb-server-10.1 [Not Installed]

    Followed above process to install MariaDB in raspberry pi(OS Debian Jessie) after,

    # apt-get install mariadb-server mariadb-client

    I checked mysql -v and mysql --version but gives error mysql: command not found

    In this line: “# add-apt-repository ‘deb sid main'” there should be “jessie” not “sid”
    Sid makes dependencies errors trying to install mariadb-server and mariadb-client with apt-get.

      Thanks for a tip, but to verify it have you tried in Jessie? If yes, could you share the screenshot where Sid makes dependencies errors while installing MariaDB?

      • Krzysztof says:

        Unfortunately I can’t give you screenshots because it’s a past now. I was installing mariadb on Debian 8 for my client and apt-get refused to install mariadb because there were not compatible version of packets. Apt-get displayed only that those missing/bad version packets couldn’t be installed. Searching for this errors gave me links with resolving different, newer in Linux distribution than in mariadb repo, issues. This gave me a clue, that maybe changing “sid” to “jessie” in apt-get’s sources.list will be a resolution and I’ve had right. After that installation went without problems.

        • Ravi Saive says:


          Thanks for detailed information, let me give a try on Debian 8 and see whether it still gives the same error and force me to change from sid to jessie, will update you my findings..
