Debian EventStoreDB install troubles

I’m trying to install EventStoreDB on Debian 11 and Debian 12. Unfortunately, the install instructions didn’t work. What can I do?

I used the following as explained on EventStore/EventStore-OSS - Packages · packagecloud

root@debian11-eventstore:~# curl -s | sudo bash

I also tried the manual installation steps. No matter what I do, I cannot seem to get the repository index to update.

root@debian11-eventstore:~# apt-get update

I’m sorry you’re struggling with this. Please do try downloading and installing the .deb file directly. We believe that will get you going. Please let us know if you are / are not successful :blush:

Thanks. All the .deb files have notes that they are for Ubuntu. Will they all work as well on Debian?

@tedhenry100 They should but keep it in mind that the .deb file was made from Ubuntu and has never been tested on Debian specifically.
