I'm looking into Landscape for managing our ubuntu clients within our business in a more efficient way however I'm running into problems at the first hurdle.
I've installed Ubuntu server 16.04.03 LTS in an ESXi VM and tied the 17.03 quickstart install I'm following the basic instructions: https://landscape.canonical.com/set-up-on-prem
But get the following results:
DERLAND01:~$ sudo apt install landscape-server-quickstart Reading package lists... Done Building dependency tree Reading state information... Done 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. landscape-server-quickstart : Depends: landscape-server (>= 17.03.3-0ubuntu1) but it is not going to be installed E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages.
The server is a plain vanilla install with only an IP address and domain suffix changes. I've also tried performing
sudo apt-get upgrade before I run the apt install but to no avail.
After a few tips from internet searches, I used
sudo aptitude install landscape-server-quickstart rather than apt to see if I can get a more detailed output and then get complaints about juju:
The following packages have unmet dependencies: juju : Depends: juju-2.0 (>= 1:2.1.2-0ubuntu1~16.04.1~juju1) but it is not going to be installed. The following actions will resolve these dependencies: Keep the following packages at their current version: 1) juju [Not Installed] 2) landscape-server [Not Installed] 3) landscape-server-quickstart [Not Installed] Leave the following dependencies unresolved: 4) landscape-hashids recommends landscape-server Accept this solution? [Y/n/q/?]
I've also tried installing the latest stable juju from the ppa, but to my understanding juju should already be taken care of by the landscape install.
If I revoke to my VM to post OS install snapshot and run through the process with Landscape 16.06 ppa - everything works fine. Am I missing something obvious or is something broken?
Any help would be appreciated as I've been going round in circles for hours!
