Unable to install CouchBase server

Hi,

I am trying to set up couchbase server by following - https://developer.couchbase.com/documentation/server/4.1/install/ubuntu-apt.html

in AWS server. In one server I was able to install but in 2nd server I am getting following error:

sudo apt-get install couchbase-server
Reading package lists… Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information… Done
E: Unable to locate package couchbase-server

Version of OS in 1st server
Distributor ID: Ubuntu
Description: Ubuntu 16.04.3 LTS
Release: 16.04

Version of OS in 2nd server

Distributor ID: Ubuntu
Description: Ubuntu 16.04.2 LTS
Release: 16.04
Codename: xenial

Did you execute sudo apt-get update? Could you post its output here?

Yes. I already tried that.

And what was the output of the command?

sudo apt-get update

Could you make sure you follow instructions in the official documentation?
https://developer.couchbase.com/documentation/server/current/install/ubuntu-debian-install.html#story-h2-2

I don’t see it is loading from http://packages.couchbase.com/releases/couchbase-server/community/deb/, are you sure you use amd64 platform?

Yes,

Could you show contents of /etc/apt/sources.list.d/couchbase.list?

vi couchbase.list
deb http://packages.couchbase.com/ubuntu xenial xenial/main

but http://packages.couchbase.com/releases/couchbase-release/couchbase-release-1.0-3-amd64.deb contains different list, it uses the following template when generating the list of repositories, so you should have three lines

deb [ arch=amd64 ] http://packages.couchbase.com/releases/couchbase-server/enterprise/deb/  %DCODE_SERVER% %DCODE_SERVER%/main
deb [ arch=amd64 ] http://packages.couchbase.com/releases/couchbase-server/community/deb/  %DCODE_SERVER% %DCODE_SERVER%/main
deb  http://packages.couchbase.com/ubuntu %DCODE_SDK% %DCODE_SDK%/main

Could you reinstall couchbase-release package?

In my other server in which I was able to install successfully, there also I have only one line:

vi couchbase.list
deb http://packages.couchbase.com/ubuntu xenial xenial/main

Tried re-installation as well, same problem

I think that the answer is simple:

#!/bin/bash
gpg --import /etc/apt/trusted.gpg.d/GPG-KEY-COUCHBASE-1.0
apt-key add /etc/apt/trusted.gpg.d/GPG-KEY-COUCHBASE-1.0

repl=`lsb_release -c | awk '{print $2}'`
if [ "$repl" = "precise" -o "$repl" = "trusty" -o "$repl" = "lucid" -o "$repl" = "wheezy" -o "$repl" = "jessie" ]; then
    sed -e "s/%DCODE_SERVER%/$repl/g" -i /etc/apt/sources.list.d/couchbase.list
    sed -e "s/%DCODE_SDK%/$repl/g" -i /etc/apt/sources.list.d/couchbase.list
elif [ "$repl" = "xenial" ]; then
    sed -e "/%DCODE_SERVER%/d" -i /etc/apt/sources.list.d/couchbase.list
    sed -e "s/%DCODE_SDK%/$repl/g" -i /etc/apt/sources.list.d/couchbase.list
fi

This is postinst script, and as you can see it removes server-related repositories on Ubuntu Xenial.

What version of Couchbase are you trying to install? Couchbase 4.6.3 does not support Ubuntu Xenial, you should use Trusty

I guess I have missed this. Can you please help me with the command to check the Couchbase version.?

You can see supported platforms in Download section on the site: https://www.couchbase.com/downloads

I am using Ubuntu 16.04 which is not supported. In both the server the version is 16.04 but I can run in one server and not in other.
Both the servers have exact configuration.

Does it work on Ubuntu Trusty 14.04.5? It should work there, as it is in list of supported platforms.
