We use the PGP key D88E42B4, Elastic’s Signing Key, with fingerprint
4609 5ACC 8548 582C 1A26 99A9 D27D 666C D88E 42B4
to sign all our packages. PGP is available from http://pgp.mit.edu.
Download and install the Public Signing Key:
wget -qO - https://packages.elastic.co/GPG-KEY-elasticsearch | sudo apt-key add -
Add the following in your
/etc/apt/sources.list.d/ directory in a file with a
.list suffix, for example
deb http://packages.elastic.co/curator/4/debian stable main
sudo apt-get update, the repository is ready for use.
Use the file edit method described above to add the Curator repository. Do not
add-apt-repository as it will add a
deb-src entry as well, but we do not
provide a source package. If you have added the
deb-src entry, you will see an
error like the following:
Unable to find expected entry 'main/source/Sources' in Release file (Wrong sources.list entry or malformed file)
Just delete the
deb-src entry from the
file and the installation should work as expected.
Starting with version 4.1.2, Curator comes with a binary version. What this
really means is that the source is compiled, and all required libraries are
bundled with the
curator binary, so there are no conflicts.
The binary packages resulting from the creation process have been tested on Debian 8, and Ubuntu 12.04, 14.04, & 16.04. It was also tested on Debian 7, but that failed due to a libc library mismatch. This binary package may work on other similar or derivative variants, but they have not been tested.
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install elasticsearch-curator
This will install the necessary files into
make a symlink at
/usr/bin/curator that points to the
curator binary in the
elasticsearch-curator binary package cannot coexist with the older
python-elasticsearch-curator packages. This collision is explicitly defined
in packages since 4.1.2, but not in previous packages. If it is installed, you
must uninstall the
python-elasticsearch-curator package before installing
elasticsearch-curator binary package.
