Suricata install failed: 2.2 or package issue or both?

  • This is what I get trying to install the suricata package:

    Installation of suricata FAILED!
    Beginning package installation for suricata .Saving updated package information... done.
    Downloading suricata and its dependencies...

    Failed to install package.
    Installation halted.

  • Strange, just for kicks, I tried a second time to run the install: now it worked.
    I leave these posts, just in case this points towards some issue with the installer, otherwise, I'd just nuke my previous post.

    There was a bug-fix update to Suricata just some hours ago. That fixed an installation issue for first-time installs of Suricata. Maybe you got the previous version, then next the new version that works.
