I followed these instructions:


$ echo "deb http://repo.mongodb.org/apt/debian "$(lsb_release -sc)"/mongodb-org/3.2 main" | sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/mongodb.list
$ sudo apt-get update
$ sudo apt-get install mongodb-org
$ apt-get install mongodb-org=3.2.0 mongodb-org-server=3.2.0 mongodb-org-shell=3.2.0 mongodb-org-mongos=3.2.0 mongodb-org-tools=3.2.0

But I get the following errors:

W: Failed to fetch http://repo.mongodb.org/apt/ubuntu/dists/wily/mongodb-org/3.2/multiverse/binary-amd64/Packages  404  Not Found

W: Failed to fetch http://repo.mongodb.org/apt/ubuntu/dists/wily/mongodb-org/3.2/multiverse/binary-i386/Packages  404  Not Found

W: Failed to fetch http://ppa.launchpad.net/tualatrix/ppa/ubuntu/dists/wily/main/binary-i386/Packages  404  Not Found

E: Some index files failed to download. They have been ignored, or old ones used instead.

What could be the cause? And how to install it successfully?


As of today, Feb 7th, 2016, per MongoDB documentation:

MongoDB only provides packages for 64-bit long-term support Ubuntu releases. Currently, this means 12.04 LTS (Precise Pangolin) and 14.04 LTS (Trusty Tahr). While the packages may work with other Ubuntu releases, this is not a supported configuration.

You should follow the instructions for installing MongoDB from a tarball.

In brief:

$ curl -O https://fastdl.mongodb.org/linux/mongodb-linux-x86_64-3.2.1.tgz
$ tar -zxvf mongodb-linux-x86_64-2.6.11.tgz
$ mkdir -p <your-intended-mongodb-install-directory>
$ cp -R -n mongodb-linux-x86_64-2.6.11/ <your-intended-mongodb-install-directory>
$ export PATH=<your-intended-mongodb-install-directory>/bin:$PATH

Even if you manually download the .deb package for 14.04, there is a problem with 15.10 confirmed here. Either way after manual installation you need to configure MongoDB and either run it as a process or daemonize it using for example:

daemon -- <your-intended-mongodb-install-directory>/bin/mongod --config /etc/mongod.conf
