I have installed MariaDb as its supported by Ubuntu community , mentioned in release note of latest LTS.
After that I tried to install Mariadb-client , that too installed successfully, after that its good to have GUI tool So decided to install MySql-workbench from both Ubuntu-SOftware-Center and via Terminal but it prompted errors mentioned below-
Error via Ubuntu-Software-Center-
This error could be caused by required additional software packages which are missing or not installable. Furthermore there could be a conflict between software packages which are not allowed to be installed at the same time. mysql-workbench: Depends: libgcc1 (>= 1:4.1.1) but 1:4.9-20140406-0ubuntu1 is to be installed Depends: libgtkmm-2.4-1c2a (>= 1:2.24.0) but 1:2.24.4-1ubuntu1 is to be installed Depends: libpcrecpp0 (>= 7.7) but 1:8.31-2ubuntu2 is to be installed Depends: python:any (>= 2.7.1-0ubuntu2) but it is a virtual package Depends: mysql-workbench-data (= 6.0.8+dfsg-2) but 6.0.8+dfsg-2 is to be installed.
Error via Terminal-
The following packages have unmet dependencies: mysql-workbench : Depends: mysql-client E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages.
This one has become confirmed bug on launchpad as mentioned here.
On the official website of My-sql , the versions of workbench are only available till saucy (13.10) , So how can I install it.
Added the following lines in /etc/apt/sources.list
# MariaDB 10.0 repository list - created 2014-04-19 11:47 UTC # http://mariadb.org/mariadb/repositories/ deb http://mirror.mephi.ru/mariadb/repo/10.0/ubuntu trusty main deb-src http://mirror.mephi.ru/mariadb/repo/10.0/ubuntu trusty main
No change , still same issue. There is some problems between trusty and version 10.1.10 of Mariadb . So tried
sudo apt-get install libmysqlclient18=10.1.10-mariadb1~trusty mysql-common=10.1.10-mariadb1~trusty
And its output is -
E: Version '10.1.10-mariadb1~trusty' for 'libmysqlclient18' was not found E: Version '10.1.10-mariadb1~trusty' for 'mysql-common' was not found
So the thing is simple it could not find it . though its there on the official website.
Removed MariaDB 10.1.10 , but the problem is still same with MariaDB 5.5.37.
