I'm trying to install ElasticSearch 2.1 on Ubuntu 14 following these instructions https://www.elastic.co/guide/en/elasticsearch/reference/current/setup-repositories.html.
I have followed the instructions exactly, but receive the error message "E: Unable to locate package elasticsearch."
Downloading 1.7 works fine (echo "deb http://packages.elastic.co/elasticsearch/1.7/debian stable main" | sudo tee -a /etc/apt/sources.list.d/elasticsearch-1.7.list). It is the 2.x version that is not working.
Worked perfectly fine for me?
I have tried it on a newly installed virtually machine and receive the same error message.
Here are my results: http://pastebin.com/raw.php?i=631eqvtF
It looks like the difference is that I am on a 32-bit architecture and yours is 64-bit.
Oh, I don't know if we have 32 bit packages?
Okay, thank you for the help, I'll install manually. Are there any plans to have 32-bit packages for the 2.x releases?
I've asked the team, will see what they say.
Hi Mark, is there any update from the team?
We don't build 32bit packages. I'm not even sure whether Elasticsearch will work properly with a 32bit JVM. I'd download the tarball and test it before going to the next step.
ES does work with 32bit JVM. At least up to v1.7.3.
