Unifi controller on arm64


I have a unifi controller setup on an oracle ampere vm (supports 6 sites), i installed it a while ago using a script from here…


But i think unifi no longer supports this method as running apt upgrade gives the following error…

Skipping acquire of configured file ‘ubiquiti/binary-arm64/Packages’ as repository ‘https://www.ui.com/downloads/unifi/debian stable InRelease’ doesn’t support architecture ‘arm64’

Can i just install the deb file from here (and remove the repo from apt without it breaking) …


over the current setup or will it break everything?


Linux version: Ubuntu 20.04.6 LTS

Running mongod --version gives…

db version v3.6.8
build environment:
distarch: aarch64
target_arch: aarch64

Running: java --version gives…

openjdk 2023-08-24
OpenJDK Runtime Environment (build
OpenJDK 64-Bit Server VM (build, mixed mode)

Uncharted territory for me, I never build them on arm.

painfull… but having a free quad core 24GB memory vm in the cloud was very very tempting, plus two additional free low powered x86 vm’s all taking to each other on the same network… the perfect “remote docker homelab” once you install tailscale on one of the nodes and connect seemlessly with pfsense at home with the tailscale addon installed

PS just discovered oracles snapshot feature :slight_smile: (their “management plane” is pretty confusing)
