Jest-mongo and Ubuntu 22.04

Hi, jest is a test framework with almost 4 million public repos on github.

Jest has instructions to use MongoMemoryServer for testing:

Unfortunately, it doesn’t work on Ubuntu 22.04 because of a libcrypto problem:

How can I get a libcrypto that Mongo likes on Ubuntu?

Or what is jest-mongo missing to work?

Here is someone elses github project that reproduces the issue: GitHub - renatopsdev/clean-code-api: This is an API developed during the course "Rest API NodeJs using TDD, Clean Architecture and Typescript"

Thank you!

MongoDB 6.0.3 supports Ubuntu 22.04 but the documentation has not been updated to reflect this.

MongoMemoryServer uses v5.0.13 which doesn’t support Ubuntu 22.04.

You can use latest mongodb version by configuring jest-mongodb using jest-mongodb-config.js

module.exports = {
  mongodbMemoryServerOptions: {
    binary: {
      version: '6.0.6',
      skipMD5: true,
    autoStart: false,
    instance: {},

This works perfectly fine in Ubuntu 22.04
