MAAS 3.3 packages version only available on jammy (22.04)?

I’ve been unable to install the package-based version of MAAS 3.3 using the instructions provided at

After running the sudo apt-add-repository command, I get an error, then when I do sudo apt update I get another error.

Reading package lists... Done
E: Failed to fetch  404  Not Found [IP: 80]
E: Some index files failed to download. They have been ignored, or old ones used instead.

When I check the website directly, it is apparent that there is only a version of 3.3 for jammy (22.04), not focal (20.04) or earlier. I’m on focal, so it was trying to find a path that simply doesn’t exist on the website

Is it “by-design” that there is only a package for jammy? What’s the deal?

Hi @mkgilbert

Indeed MAAS 3.3 is available only for jammy. It is mentioned in release notes that MAAS 3.3 from packages runs on 22.04 LTS only.

I believe the reason might be because between 20.04 and 22.04 there were some backward incompatible changes in the underlying libraries that MAAS depends on.

If you want to try 3.3 on 20.04 I would suggest you to try snap version or build your own PPA (but that might require some code changes because of dependencies).
