I’m trying to install mysqclient, but I’m getting an error when trying ‘apt-get install libmariadbclient-dev’ in Ubuntu 18.04 LTS with Python 3.7.0.
How can I make this work? Thanks.
sudo apt-get install libmariadbclient-dev Reading package lists... Done Building dependency tree Reading state information... Done Some packages could not be installed. This may mean that you have requested an impossible situation or if you are using the unstable distribution that some required packages have not yet been created or been moved out of Incoming. The following information may help to resolve the situation: The following packages have unmet dependencies: libmariadbclient-dev : Depends: libmariadbclient18 (= 1:10.1.29-6) but 1:10.3.7+maria~bionic is to be installed E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages.
Installing an older version, works:
sudo apt-get install libmariadbclient18=1:10.1.29-6 sudo apt-get install libmariadbclient18-dev=1:10.1.29-6 pip3.7 install mysqlclient
Today, I installed MariaDB 10.3.8 as shown below (in a clean system) and libmariadbclient18 installed without complaining:
sudo apt-get install software-properties-common sudo apt-key adv --recv-keys --keyserver hkp://keyserver.ubuntu.com:80 0xF1656F24C74CD1D8 sudo add-apt-repository 'deb [arch=amd64,arm64,ppc64el] http://sfo1.mirrors.digitalocean.com/mariadb/repo/10.3/ubuntu bionic main' sudo apt update sudo apt install mariadb-server sudo apt install mariadb-client sudo apt install libmariadb-dev sudo apt install libmariadb-dev-compat sudo apt-get install libmariadbclient18
I don’t know whether having installed libmariadb-dv and libmariadv-dev-compat helped.
