Summary0000941: Ubuntu 18.04 installation failes, because its not shipping depency libreadline6 anymore
DescriptionOn Ubuntu 18.04, the installation of Bareos Director and Client is not working Out-of-the-Box while using the Repository from 16.04 (18.04 repo is not existing yet)

OS: Ubuntu 18.04 LTS

 bareos : Depends: bareos-client (= 17.2.4-9.1) but it is not going to be installed
 bareos-client : Depends: bareos-bconsole (>= 17.2.4-9.1) but it is not going to be installed
 bareos-bconsole : Depends: libreadline6 (>= 6.0) but it is not installable
Steps To ReproduceTry install Bareos 17.2.latest from on 18.04
Additional InformationWorkaround: create & use libreadline6 fake-package with symlink inside /lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/ /lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/ , because Ubuntu 18.04 is shipping libreadline7

If it works completely that fake way? i dont know. but bconsole -t is now working again also ;)

Well, we know, we do not provide Ubuntu 18.04 packages now. We are working on this. Ubuntu 16.04 packages are not intended to run on 18.04.
