I attempted to install percona's tools on ubuntu and had issues. I abandoned the idea of using it.

Now upon removal it keeps kicking this error:

The following packages will be REMOVED:

percona-release

0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 1 to remove and 162 not upgraded.

After this operation, 48.1 kB disk space will be freed.

Do you want to continue? [Y/n] Y

(Reading database ... 54695 files and directories currently installed.)

Removing percona-release (0.1-3.trusty) ... N: Ignoring file 'percona-release_0.1-3.trusty_all.deb' in directory '/etc/apt/sources.list.d/' as it has an invalid filename extension N: Ignoring file 'percona-release_0.1-3.trusty_all.deb' in directory '/etc/apt/sources.list.d/' as it has an invalid filename extension

Can I just delete those files without messing anything else up, then remove the rest of the package?

To me it looks like your issues come from a file with a suffix not being .list. Could you share the contents of /etc/apt/sources.list.d?

Or have you placed percona-release_0.1-3.trusty_all.deb into /etc/apt/sources.list.d? If so please remove it.

  • files in folder: ondrej-php-trusty.list ; ondrej-php-trusty.list.save; percona-release_0.1-3.trusty_all.deb; Your fix worked, had to remove .deb :) – Nick Feb 19 '16 at 21:26
