Supported Ubuntu Versions?

Howdy!

I am currently facing a very exciting problem.
According to https://packages.icinga.com/ubuntu/ Ubuntu 19.04 (Disco Dingo) is supported. I like it, I have used it so far.
The more current version 19.10 (Eoan Ermine) does not.
I don’t like that, because 19.04 is currently EOL and there are no more current packages.
A test installation fails:

$  cat /etc/os-release

Ubuntu 20.04 (Focal Fossa) will be the upcoming stable and even an LTS version.
But it is not officially available yet.

So I currently have no way to roll out an Icinga installation on a 19.0x release.

Are there any plans to officially support 19.10 or do I have to wait until there are packages for 20.04?

At the moment I can’t do installations on customer systems that use a 19.0x release. (And until there is an official release for 20.04, there may be a few months left, we all know corporations …)

Hi @bodsch,

we have just released our latest stable versions of Icinga 2 and Icinga Web 2 for Ubuntu 19.10.
I hope that resolves your issues until 20.04 arrives. Thank you for the reminder!

someone mentioned 20.04 ? :slight_smile:
I think it was @nhilverling :zipper_mouth_face:

I hope someone has the release date for 20.04 (23.04.2020) on the screen!

Hi,

we’re currently working on releasing our stable versions on Ubuntu 20.04. If everything goes to plan, you can expect packages by the end of the week.

https://packages.icinga.com/ubuntu/dists/icinga-focal/
(Although urrently only for amd64)

No, that repo hasnt been updated since 4th of may, a day before Noahs post… So still no package made it by the end of the week… still waiting…

Ah, migth explain the bugs im getting.

Hi,

I’m sorry to disappoint you, but as you already found out, we encountered a few problems with 20.04.
We’re still working on those packages and I’ll come back to you once they’re ready.

Noah

No problem :slight_smile:

Hi,

packages for Icinga 2.11.3 are now available for 20.04.
We currently can’t provide packages for Icinga Web 2.7, because this version is not compatible with the PHP version provided by Ubuntu 20.04 (PHP 7.4). We’ll provide stable Icinga Web packages for 2.8+ when that’s released. Properly by the end of the month.

Greetings
Noah
