Impossible to start mongoDB ubuntu server 20.04.03 LTS on Raspberry Pi 4

I just followed the offical tutorial Doc and when i try to start mongod i got this :

ubuntu@ubuntu:~$ systemctl status mongod
● mongod.service - MongoDB Database Server
     Loaded: loaded (/lib/systemd/system/mongod.service; enabled; vendor preset: enabled)
     Active: failed (Result: core-dump) since Thu 2021-09-02 21:51:39 UTC; 14s ago
    Process: 1859 ExecStart=/usr/bin/mongod --config /etc/mongod.conf (code=dumped, signal=ILL)
   Main PID: 1859 (code=dumped, signal=ILL)

Sep 02 21:51:36 ubuntu systemd[1]: Started MongoDB Database Server.
Sep 02 21:51:39 ubuntu systemd[1]: mongod.service: Main process exited, code=dumped, status=4/ILL
Sep 02 21:51:39 ubuntu systemd[1]: mongod.service: Failed with result 'core-dump'.

Can someone help me ?
it’s an install from scratch i just installed ubuntu 20.04.03 few minutes ago and followed the official doc step by step :confused:

Hi @Badis_H

Relevant for the 5.0 release are the changes in supported cpu microarchitectures. If MongoDB 4.4 runs and 5.0 does not this is likely the issue.


MongoDB requires the following minimum x86_64 microarchitectures: [2]

  • For Intel x86_64 , MongoDB requires one of:
    • a Sandy Bridge or later Core processor, or
    • a Tiger Lake or later Celeron or Pentium processor.
  • For AMD x86_64 , MongoDB requires:
    • a Bulldozer or later processor.

[2] MongoDB 5.0 requires use of the AVX instruction set, available on select Intel and AMD processors.

i tryed to run it on a raspberry pi 4 with Ubuntu serveur

processor of raspberry pi 4 is :

Broadcom BCM2711, quad-core Cortex-A72 (ARM v8) 64-bit SoC @ 1.5GHz.

There has been a previous thread on Rpi4, it does not meet requirements for v5.0+.

Hi @Badis_H,

As @chris noted, Raspberry Pi 4 unfortunately does not meet the CPU microarchitecture requirements for MongoDB 5.0 binary packages. MongoDB 4.4 packages are currently the last supported release series for RPi 4; you also have the option of building from source (ideally cross-compiling in a more capable environment).

Please see Core dump on MongoDB 5.0 on RPi 4 - #13 by Jan-Felix_Abellera for relevant discussion.
