ubuntu 18.04 upgrade. Issues installing z-push 2.4.4

  • Hello,
    I’ve upgraded from Ubuntu server 16.04 to 18.04 and cannot install z-push.

    I was running before z-push 2.3 (manual installation) but without php 7.x support I need to use the latest z-push.
    I’ve read the wiki and searched the forum but couldn’t find any solution to my issue (some issues were similar but tried it and it didn’t help)

    So I first created the z-push.list added the repo and sent

    wget -qO - http://repo.z-hub.io/z-push:/final/Ubuntu_18.04/Release.key | sudo apt-key add -

    When trying to run sudo apt-get install z-push-kopano z-push-config-apache I received following error

    The following packages have unmet dependencies:
     z-push-kopano : Depends: z-push-backend-kopano (= 2.4.4+0-0) but it is not going to be installed
    E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages. 

    So I tried sudo apt-get install z-push-backend-kopano z-push-config-apache

    But then I receive

    The following packages have unmet dependencies:
     z-push-backend-kopano : Depends: php7-mapi but it is not installable or
                                      php5-mapi but it is not installable
    E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages.

    php-map is correctly installed

    # apt install php-mapi
    Reading package lists... Done

    php-mapi is already the newest version (8.5.5-0ubuntu1).

    Hi @nunor ,

    the z-push packages are designed and tested against the official Kopano packages, but seeing that your version is 8.5.5-0ubuntu1 you seem to be running the packages provided by the Ubuntu repositories.

    If my memory is correct there should also be a z-push in the Ubuntu repositories. I would expect that this one works out of the box.

    If you still want to use the official z-push packages, then to fulfil app dependencies, you probably need to upgrade to the official kopano packages as well.

  • Hi @fbartels ,

    Thanks for the quick reply. I checked and u-push is indeed in the Ubuntu repositories but only version 2.3.8 (https://packages.ubuntu.com/bionic/z-push) which will not work with php 7.2

  • I have same issue anyone can help

  • Kopano

    @shock143 If you have the same problem then please verify that you’re not mixing Ubuntu / Debian packages and official packages provided by Kopano. So either everything from the distro-provided sources, or everything from Kopano / Z-Push. Mixing them leads to errors.
