I have run into a problem installing mssql server (ver. 14.0.600) on an Ubuntu server (16.04, x86-64). The installation stops with the following error:
The following packages have unmet dependencies: mssql-server : Depends: openssl (<= 1.1.0).
apt-cache policy openssl reports
Installed: 1.1.0f-2~ubuntu16.04.1+deb.sury.org+1 / Candidate: 1.1.0f-2~ubuntu16.04.1+deb.sury.org+4
sudo apt-get install -f was initially:
0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 7 not upgraded.
After apt-get upgrade (apache,openssl,grub):
0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 0 not upgraded.
Sadly enough, same dependency error as before.
Is openssl 1.1.0f > 1.1.0 ? Is there any way out of this problem, short of reinstalling Ubuntu with openssl 1.0.2g ?
Trying to downgrade openssl does not appear to be a safe procedure according to several posts on the net.
apt-get purge --auto-remove openssl
0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 139 to remove and 0 not upgraded.
This is not something that I want to/dare to do right now.
