I have been trying to install mariadb on Ubuntu 14.04
I installed it some 4 months back, following a tutorial from mariadb website.
I typed the following commands :
sudo apt-get install software-properties-common sudo apt-key adv --recv-keys --keyserver hkp://keyserver.ubuntu.com:80 0xcbcb082a1bb943db sudo add-apt-repository 'deb [arch=amd64,i386] http://mirror.netinch.com/pub/mariadb/repo/10.1/ubuntu trusty main' sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install mariadb-server
And the installation failed leaving my system in a mess.
When I try to install
libmariadbclient-dev I get the following errors:
sudo apt-get install libmariadbclient-dev Reading package lists... Done Building dependency tree Reading state information... Done The following NEW packages will be installed: libmariadbclient-dev 0 upgraded, 1 newly installed, 0 to remove and 214 not upgraded. 1 not fully installed or removed.

I have also tried
sudo apt-get install -f as suggested in many posts but to no avail.
