MineMeld - Unable to locate package minemeld

Hey,

 

I just installed Ubuntu 16.04 to set up MineMeld according to these instructions:

https://live.paloaltonetworks.com/t5/MineMeld-Articles/Manually-Install-MineMeld-on-Ubuntu-Server-16...

 

Once running 

sudo apt install -o Dpkg::Options::="--force-overwrite" -y minemeld

I get the following Error:

 

E: Unable to locate package minemeld

When running  uname -a to check if I have the 64bit version installed I get:

Linux MINEMELD 4.4.0-164-generic #192-Ubuntu SMP Fri Sep 13 12:02:50 UTC 2019 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

 

I couldn't find any other thread going into this issue.

The ubuntu .iso I downloaded was labeled "ubuntu-16.04.6-server-amd64"

Best regards

Re: MineMeld - Unable to locate package minemeld

Sound like the repo isn't setup correctly

 

First make sure you run this command

 

 wget -qO - https://minemeld-updates.panw.io/gpg.key | sudo apt-key add -

That will add the trust key

 

Second , run this

 

sudo add-apt-repository "deb http://minemeld-updates.panw.io/ubuntu xenial-minemeld main"
sudo apt update

That will add the minemeld repo

 

Third, After you add the minemeld repo and then do a sudo update, you'll get an error about i386. To over come that I added [arch=amd64] to the apt sources list in /etc/apt/sources.list

 

eg; deb [arch=amd64] http://minemeld-updates.panw.io/ubuntu xenial-minemeld main

 

After all that

 

sudo apt install -o Dpkg::Options::="--force-overwrite" -y minemeld

 

 

 

Just another I.T. guy
