I can't seem to install the latest version of mongoDB on Raspberry pi 4. I have tried doing

sudo apt-get install mongodb 

This installs mongoDB 2.4.

    I thought MongoDB needed a 64-bit OS. The current Raspbian version is 32-bit. So you either need to try with the Gentoo64 OS, try with the experimental Raspbian 64 kernel or try installing an old 32-bit version of Mongo. – Dougie Sep 20 '19 at 22:10

    You have already installed MongoDB raspberrypi.stackexchange.com/q/103781/79866 and you wrote here again "This installs mongoDB 2.4". So what's the question? Do you want another version? – Ingo Sep 20 '19 at 22:19
  • Just now I tried your command to install mongodb. A couple of minutes later, I got the message "Processing triggers for systemd (241 ...), then *** Error: Timeout was reached ***. Are you asking how to solve the timeout problem? – tlfong01 Sep 21 '19 at 4:14
  • no, it installs fine however when I go to run my node.js app it then creates an error which says that the version of mongodb installed is not up to date and doesn't work with the node mongo drivers – mbh16 Sep 21 '19 at 13:33
  • I have tried the Raspian Buster 64 Kernel and the same has happened. – mbh16 Sep 21 '19 at 19:59

Maybe try

sudo apt-get install -y mongodb-server

    Please explain why do you believe that this will install the latest version of MongoDB and not version 2.4.14 as given in the default Raspbian repository. – Ingo Nov 22 '19 at 11:28
