I am trying to install mongoDB on my Raspberry Pi 3b+, which has an ARM 4-Core 64 bit processor.

I was trying to install MongoDB on my Pi just as mentioned in their documentation but unfortunately I get the error messages:

N: Skipping acquire of configured file 'multiverse/binary-arm64/Packages' as repository 'https://repo.mongodb.org/apt/ubuntu bionic/mongodb-org/4.0 InRelease' doesn't support architecture 'arm64'


E: Unable to locate package mongodb-org

The first message really surprises me as MongoDB mentions that it should be compatible with ARM64 processors: Production Notes

I also made sure that I have 64 bit by issuing the command uname -m which returns aarch64 as a result.

More information about my system:

Distributor ID: Ubuntu
Description:    Ubuntu 18.04.2 LTS
Release:        18.04
Codename:       bionic

I have spent quite a lot of time on that topic now and would be very thankful for an answer that solves it.

Have you try below command

sudo apt-get install mongodb

If not, go with this and try. Alternative solution for your problem are

  • Using the cloud is not an option. sudo apt-get install mongodb does not install the newest official mongoldb server. A docker image also does not work. Commented Jul 22, 2019 at 19:02
  • I think no link available for downloading new version of mongodb on offical site of mongodb for arm arch. And I think docker image option is better than. Commented Jul 23, 2019 at 9:30
