Hi all,
after upgrading to Ubuntu 22.04 I noticed that mysql-workbench package was removed from my system (although it was installed before upgrading).
I searched for it but it is not in the official 22.04 repository.
I found also that third parties mysql ubuntu repositories (https://repo.mysql.com/apt/ubuntu/dists/) has not been upgraded to jammy.
I searched askubuntu and I only get a "try with the snap package" poor suggestion.
Can anyone give me info?
Thanks a lot.

How to repeat:
Just search in official Ubuntu repositories or browse https://repo.mysql.com/apt/ubuntu/dists/

We do have some news for you .....

One of the next 8.0 releases, 8.0.30 or, 8.0.31 or 8.0.32 will be ported to the Debian that you are using. Exact release is not yet determined, so it would suffice if you would  just follow our download pages once per month .....

I find myself here after about 2-3 days of whack-a-mole on missing libraries trying to build mysql-workbench for an armhf sbc dev box >:o



On a brighter note, atleast i learnt the ins-n-outs of the cats backside when it comes to cmake / compiling /etc / etc .. you live n learn eh..

Not sure if it's worth mentioning but;

The build failed because of something along the lines of;

libmysqlcppconn.so: file not recognized: file format not recognized


After a bit of reading i think it has something to do with a mismatch/translation issue wherein (potentially multiple) variants of the libmysqlcppconn.so library are in use across different arch systems, causing symbols to be misinterpreted or w.e... trevoh..

.. You know when you have to build something, so you can build something else, that will then allow you to build the thing that lets you build what you wanted to build.. but then the final build doesnt build??? grr.
