Upgrading ubuntu to influxdb_1.8.6_amd64.deb

Hi,

I have a AWS EC2 and trying to upgrade to influxdb_1.8.6_amd64.deb but I get the following errors.

wget https://dl.influxdata.com/influxdb/releases/influxdb_1.8.6_amd64.deb
sudo dpkg -i influxdb_1.8.6_amd64.deb
ubuntu@ip-xxx-xx-xxx-xxx:~$ sudo dpkg -i influxdb_1.8.6_amd64.deb

Thank you

wget https://dl.influxdata.com/influxdb/releases/influxdb_1.8.6_amd64.deb

sudo dpkg -i influxdb_1.8.6_amd64.deb

Why download and install with dpkg instead of pointing at the repository?

https://docs.influxdata.com/influxdb/v1.8/introduction/install

dpkg: error processing archive influxdb_1.8.6_amd64.deb (–install):
trying to overwrite ‘/usr/bin/influx’, which is also in package
influxdb-client 1.6.4-1build1 dpkg-deb

Did you try uninstalling influxdb-client and then installing influxdb?

Antony.

I have 1.6.4 already installed.

I just want to upgrade to the latest version

I would use the repository as documented at
https://docs.influxdata.com/influxdb/v1.8/introduction/install
and then (depending on your preference) apt-get upgrade or aptitude upgrade.
