Percona apt Repository

Debian and Ubuntu packages from Percona are signed with a key. Before using the repository, you should add the key to apt. To do that, run the following commands as root:

$ apt-key adv --keyserver keys.gnupg.net --recv-keys 1C4CBDCDCD2EFD2A

Add this to /etc/apt/sources.list, replacing VERSION with the name of your distribution:

deb http://repo.percona.com/apt VERSION main
deb-src http://repo.percona.com/apt VERSION main

Remember to update the local cache:

$ apt-get update

After that you can install the server and client packages

$ apt-get install percona-server-server-5.6 percona-server-client-5.6

Percona apt Testing repository

Percona offers pre-release builds from the testing repository. To enable it add the following lines to your /etc/apt/sources.list , replacing VERSION with the name of your distribution:

deb http://repo.percona.com/apt VERSION main testing
deb-src http://repo.percona.com/apt VERSION main testing

Apt-Pinning the packages

In some cases you might need to “pin” the selected packages to avoid the upgrades from the distribution repositories. You’ll need to make a new file /etc/apt/preferences.d/00percona.pref and add the following lines in it:

Package: *
Pin: release o=Percona Development Team
Pin-Priority: 1001

For more information about the pinning you can check the official debian wiki.
