Installing Analytics DP3 on Ubuntu

I’m trying to install Analytics DP3 on Ubuntu 14.04 and I’m getting this error. This server has the new RTM bits of Server 5.0.0 installed. Any advice?

The “-dbg” package downloaded from the Couchbase website seems to have a dependency on another package without the “-dbg” suffix, which it can’t find. Any advice?

Two things went wrong:

  1. Our download page is evidently wrong, and it gave you a download of a debug-only package. Please try this download link:

  2. Analytics DP3 (unlike earlier DPs) is integrated into Couchbase Server, so you don’t need to have Server already installed on your machine - in fact it will likely fail to install if you do.

Hope that helps,

Perfect, that did the trick. Thanks!
