I have servers running on Ubuntu 14.10 and have started upgrading them to 18.04. However, my installation playbooks (Ansible) are failing on the apt install of nagios-plugins-extra.

I looked for this package and it looks like it's only available for Trusty and Xenial, not for Bionic.


The description for Xenial says 'transactional dummy package', does this mean it's now part of the regular nagios-plugins?


All of the nagios-plugins-<whatever> packages have been renamed to monitoring-plugins-<whatever>.

See the Ubuntu package search.

There is no monitoring-plugins-extra, because the contents of that package were merged into monitoring-plugins-standard.

(The only plugins that were in nagios-plugins-extra, as of 14.04 anyway, were check_fping and check_game.)
