Parcel not available for OS Distribution UBUNTU_XENAIL

New Contributor


After the OS Upgrade from Ubuntu 14 to 16.04 we got the below message

"Parcel not available for OS Distribution UBUNTU_XENAIL"

After the upgrade we had done the below steps


on /etc/apt/sources.list.d/cloudera-cm5.list


Added below



# Packages for Cloudera Manager, Version 5, on Ubuntu 16.04 x86_64
deb [arch=amd64] xenial-cm5 contrib
deb-src xenial-cm5 contrib
# Packages for Cloudera Distribution for navigator-keytrustee, on Ubuntu 16.04 amd64
deb [arch=amd64] xenial-navigator-keytrustee5 contrib
deb-src xenial-navigator-keytrustee5 contrib



After that installed using 

sudo apt-get install cloudera-manager-server cloudera-manager-daemons cloudera-manager-server-db-2 cloudera-manager-agent


when the service was up and checked the GUI it was showing "Parcel not available for OS Distribution UBUNTU_XENAIL"


Any help would be appreciated

I have the same problem. I wanted to upgrade my cluster from Ubuntu 14.04 to Ubuntu 16.04.3 so I started by testing only one host. At the end I had to decomission the host, removed it and added back to cluster. But it failed to download the Parcels. So I have no choice but going back to Ubuntu 14.04 if I want to use that host.


Is there any way to upgrade a cluster to Ubuntu 16.04? Any order or instruction? 


I have the latest CDH (5.12) on all my hosts.



Expert Contributor
I upgraded my entire cluster (30) nodes to Ubuntu 16.04 very easily. Once the Parcel has the packages in Xenial then it's just the matter of download/distribute/activate.
