Trying to install Grafana on Ubuntu 14

I recently installed Graphite/Carbon/Whisper on a Ubuntu 14 host. Now I’m trying to install Grafana, but I’ve had no success. From the Grafana docs I did the following:

APT Repository
Add the following line to your /etc/apt/sources.list file.
deb jessie main

Then add the Package Cloud key. This allows you to install signed packages.
$ curl | sudo apt-key add -

Update your Apt repositories and install Grafana
apt-get update
apt-get install grafana

However, this is what I am getting:

Reading package lists… Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information… Done
The following NEW packages will be installed:
0 upgraded, 1 newly installed, 0 to remove and 2 not upgraded.
Need to get 0 B/45.9 MB of archives.

As far as I can tell, this is what it does:

Creates the following

Does not create the following

Can anyone shed some light on what I am doing wrong? Any help at all on getting this working would be GREATLY appreciated.

very strange, can’t expain why this happens.

Don’t have a ubuntu 14 install available to test with only 16.x and a first install works without issues.

Try creating (as root) /etc/grafana directory and try to reinstall

Thanks for the response. I did what you said and it seemed to install without errors. However, the same files were missing after the install, so what I did was manually extract all of the files from the .deb pkg and installed them manually. FYI, the .deb pkg did not have an /etc/grafana/grafana.ini file in it along with nothing in the /var/lib/grafana directory (not sure if that is correct or not). So right now I think that its probably installed. Also, I’m not able to get the service running, but I think thats a different thread.
Thanks for your help.

those files are created in the post install script, no idea why it’s not working on Ubuntu 14 but is working on later versions
