MongoDB Installation Difficulties - Ubuntu 20.04

I have been having trouble installing MongoDB on Ubuntu 20.04 (x86_64). When I run “sudo nano /var/lib/dpkg/status” , the MongoDB database tools package states:

Package: mongodb-database-tools
Status: install ok not-installed
Priority: optional
Section: database
Architecture: amd64

Is there any way I can correct this error and also how do i correctly install and utilize MongoDB on my OS after I have fixed the problem. All articles online lead me to the same errors that forced me to uninstall MongoDB several times after multiple installations. Thanks.

Hi @I-Ben and welcome to the forums,

All articles online lead me to the same errors that forced me to uninstall MongoDB several times after multiple installations.

Would you be able to share which installation instructions did you follow ?

Please see Install MongoDB on Ubuntu to install the current stable version of MongoDB 4.4 Community Edition.

If you’re still encountering an issue please provide the installation steps that you tried and any error messages while performing the instructions.

Regards,
Wan.
