This is a very newbie question but I guess it's OK since I am rather new Ubuntu Linux user and now trying to install MariaDB to my computer.

I am using Ubuntu version 14.04 and my problem is that first I chose to install a wrong version (utopic) of MariaDB. My Ubuntu version does not support that I guess and now when I am trying to install install the correct version (trusty) I get an error saying

mariadb-server-10.0 (= 10.0.16+maria-1~utopic) but 10.0.16+maria-1~utopic is to be installed 

Could someone help me and tell what should I do and how?

Thank you already in advance!

  • Edit your question and add the output of apt-cache policy mariadb-server-10.0; lsb_release -a; grep -r 'utopic' /etc/apt – A.B. Oct 28 '15 at 12:33

Make sure that only trusty entries are in /etc/apt/sources.list and the files in /etc/apt/sources.list.d/. You may use this default /etc/apt/sources.list:

# newer versions of the distribution.

deb-src http://de.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ trusty main restricted

Then try

sudo apt-get remove mariadb-server
sudo apt-get install mariadb-server
  • purge removes all configurations, too. That's a bad idea. – A.B. Oct 28 '15 at 12:32
