I follow MariaDB docs on how to build MariaDB on my Ubuntu.
It says run
On a Debian based distribution: apt-get build-dep mariadb-server-10.X where X is the suffix of the major version.
So I run
sudo apt-get build-dep mariadb-server-10.5
and get this error:
Reading package lists... Done E: You must put some 'deb-src' URIs in your sources.list
This error hint message is meaningless to me.
sudo apt-get build-dep mariadb-server-10.5 sudo apt build-dep mariadb-server-10.5 sudo apt build-dep mariadb-server-10.4 sudo apt build-dep mariadb-server-10.3
Also, used a simpler command and yet I get the same problem:
$ sudo apt-get build-dep build-essential Reading package lists... Done E: You must put some 'deb-src' URIs in your sources.list
How to fix this error?
My Ubuntu is a server with a gui desktop installed on top of it
$ uname -a Linux myserver 5.4.0-42-generic #46-Ubuntu SMP Fri Jul 10 00:24:02 UTC 2020 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux
PS. While I probably can use
apt install, I do not really want to install anything more than it is mandated.
