It's been nearly 6 months since this was originally asked.


Is there an ETA for supporting Xenial?

Re: CDH on ubuntu 16.04 xenial ?

With the lates 5.11.0, its mentioned that ubuntu 16.04 xenial is supported.


When trying to install. I get this error: 

sudo apt-get update
Hit:1 xenial-cm5.11.0 InRelease
Hit:2 xenial InRelease
Get:3 xenial-updates InRelease [102 kB]
Get:4 xenial-security InRelease [102 kB]

W: Signature by key F36A89E33CC1BD0F71079007327574EE02A818DD uses weak digest algorithm (SHA1)


Anyone has any idea on how to get around this?

Re: CDH on ubuntu 16.04 xenial ?

The problem isn't the warning about the weak signature. All the information about the package files isn't consistent and files are listed as empty:

Re: CDH on ubuntu 16.04 xenial ?

Only the xenial-cdh5/ repo is broken, xenial-cdh5.11/ is consistent. So there is the following work-around:

  1. dowload the file cloudera.list following this instruction
  2. edit the file so that it points to the valid repo (5.11 now, but this may change):
    % cat /etc/apt/sources.list.d/cloudera.list
    # Packages for Cloudera's Distribution for Hadoop, Version 5, on Ubuntu 16.04 amd64
    deb [arch=amd64] xenial-cdh5.11 contrib
    deb-src xenial-cdh5.11 contrib
  3. continue "as usual": sudo apt update, etc.
