Error installing grafana

Hi,

Hardware: RPi3 B+
openHAB version: openhab2.5.12 (v1.6.1b)

I am following this link to install grafana on my raspberry pi:

I installed grafana on another raspberry pi successfully just last week following the same steps. Yesterday, on a new raspberry pi, unfortunately, I am getting errors:

sudo apt-get install -y grafana
Reading package lists… Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information… Done
Package grafana is not available, but is referred to by another package.
This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or
is only available from another source

E: Package ‘grafana’ has no installation candidate

I could not find any helpful topics similar to this. I would be very grateful if someone could help me resolve this. Thank you!

Please paste the output of the command “grep -r grafana /etc/apt” as a
starter.

Antony.

Thank you so much for your response!
Here it is:

openhabian@openhabMK:~ $ grep -r grafana /etc/apt
/etc/apt/sources.list.d/grafana.list:deb https://packages.grafana.com/oss/deb stable main
/etc/apt/sources.list.d/grafana.list:deb https://packages.grafana.com/oss/deb stable main
/etc/apt/sources.list.d/grafana.list:deb https://packages.grafana.com/oss/deb stable main
/etc/apt/sources.list.d/grafana.list:deb https://packages.grafana.com/oss/deb stable main
Binary file /etc/apt/trusted.gpg matches

So, firstly I wonder why there are four separate references to the repository.

Secondly I wonder whether this matches the results of the same command on your
working Pi.

Thirdly I wonder whether you did “apt-get update” before trying the “apt-get
install grafana”.

Finally I wonder what the output of “apt-cache policy grafana” is.

Please post answers & output :slight_smile:

Antony.

That’s most probably because I tried to install it multiple times.

I am unable to check that, because I don’t have access to that Pi currently. But I followed the exact same instructions from the grafana website.

Yes, I am not that experienced with linux but I followed the exact same instructions from here: Install Grafana on Raspberry Pi | Grafana Labs

openhabian@openhabMK:~ $ apt-cache policy grafana
grafana:
  Installed: (none)
  Candidate: (none)
  Version table:

I was trying to figure it and saw this error that I probably glanced over and missed until today:
