Repositoriesedit

We also have repositories available for APT and YUM based distributions. Note that we only provide binary packages, but no source packages, as the packages are created as part of the Elasticsearch build.

We have split the major versions in separate urls to avoid accidental upgrades across major version. For all 2.x releases use 2.x as version number, for 3.x.y use 3.x etc…

We use the PGP key D88E42B4, Elasticsearch Signing Key, with fingerprint

4609 5ACC 8548 582C 1A26 99A9 D27D 666C D88E 42B4

to sign all our packages. It is available from https://pgp.mit.edu.

APTedit

Download and install the Public Signing Key:

wget -qO - https://packages.elastic.co/GPG-KEY-elasticsearch | sudo apt-key add -

Save the repository definition to /etc/apt/sources.list.d/elasticsearch-2.x.list:

echo "deb https://packages.elastic.co/elasticsearch/2.x/debian stable main" | sudo tee -a /etc/apt/sources.list.d/elasticsearch-2.x.list
Warning

Use the echo method described above to add the Elasticsearch repository. Do not use 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 /etc/apt/sources.list file and the installation should work as expected.

Run apt-get update and the repository is ready for use. You can install it with:

sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install elasticsearch
Warning

If two entries exist for the same Elasticsearch repository, you will see an error like this during apt-get update:

Duplicate sources.list entry https://packages.elastic.co/elasticsearch/2.x/debian/ ...`

Examine /etc/apt/sources.list.d/elasticsearch-2.x.list for the duplicate entry or locate the duplicate entry amongst the files in /etc/apt/sources.list.d/ and the /etc/apt/sources.list file.

Configure Elasticsearch to automatically start during bootup. If your distribution is using SysV init, then you will need to run:

sudo update-rc.d elasticsearch defaults 95 10

Otherwise if your distribution is using systemd:

sudo /bin/systemctl daemon-reload
sudo /bin/systemctl enable elasticsearch.service

YUM / DNFedit

Download and install the public signing key:

rpm --import https://packages.elastic.co/GPG-KEY-elasticsearch

Add the following in your /etc/yum.repos.d/ directory in a file with a .repo suffix, for example elasticsearch.repo

[elasticsearch-2.x]
name=Elasticsearch repository for 2.x packages
baseurl=https://packages.elastic.co/elasticsearch/2.x/centos
gpgcheck=1
gpgkey=https://packages.elastic.co/GPG-KEY-elasticsearch
enabled=1

And your repository is ready for use. You can install it with:

yum install elasticsearch

Or, for newer versions of Fedora and Redhat:

dnf install elasticsearch

Configure Elasticsearch to automatically start during bootup. If your distribution is using SysV init (check with ps -p 1), then you will need to run:

Warning

The repositories do not work with older rpm based distributions that still use RPM v3, like CentOS5.

chkconfig --add elasticsearch

Otherwise if your distribution is using systemd:

sudo /bin/systemctl daemon-reload
sudo /bin/systemctl enable elasticsearch.service
