E: Package grafana is not found

I am trying to install Grafana OSS on a Debian 11 (Bullseye) following Install on Debian or Ubuntu | Grafana documentation. All commands are completed sucessfully, only the last one “sudo apt-get install grafana” returns an “E: Package grafana is not found”.
Any idea, what is going wrong here?
Thanks and Regards,

Please ensure that you did the “apt-get update” step, and then show us the
output from the following commands:

  1. cat /etc/apt/sources.list.d/grafana.list

  2. aptitude search grafana

If you don’t have aptitude installed and that second command returns:
-bash: aptitude: command not found
then instead please show us the output of:

  1. apt search grafana

Please use sudo for any of the above commands if appropriate / necessary.

Hi Antony,
do you have any feedback on this subject?

Does the output of “apt-get update” mention anything at all about


Yes, it does:

I have to say I’m stumped by this one - does anyone else have any ideas how
Debian is clearly using the packages.grafana.com repository (which is the same
one that my Debian 10 systems point at) and yet claims not to have any
packages named “grafana” and therefore won’t install it?


Let me spin up a fresh Debian instance and see what I can find out.

Any new information?

tried installing Debian on vmware workstation, it is still spinning :slight_smile: sorry
