Getting the same error while trying to install it on Ubuntu 20.04 LTS.

Is it really the same error message on 20.04?
The 20.04 package has libperl5.30 as dependency.
On my 20.04 systems i get no such error. Please keep in mind that 21.04 is not supported from Ubuntu side anymore.

how do you install the package? What’s the command?


sudo apt install ./check-mk-free-2.0.0p24_0.hirsute_amd64

That’s the command I used.

Thanks for sharing this, I created a fresh Ubuntu 20.04 LTS and it works without any error for me. My bad i tried on other machines with Ubuntu 20.04 LTS and it didn’t work and throw the same error. So under the impression that there is something wrong with the package…

I had this problem with wrong checkmk installation packages for the ubuntu releases. Should work if you ve downloaded the correct package for your release.
