Error 404 Installing Gitlab CE

Hello all,

i’m trying to install Gitlab CE on a Oracle Linux.

I’m following the Download and install GitLab | GitLab guide

but every time i try to do step 2:

  1. Add the GitLab package repository and install the package
    Add the GitLab package repository.
    curl -sS https://packages.gitlab.com/install/repositories/gitlab/gitlab-ce/script.rpm.sh | sudo bash

This usually happens if your operating system is not supported by
packagecloud.io, or this script's OS detection failed.

You can override the OS detection by setting os= and dist= prior to running this script.
You can find a list of supported OSes and distributions on our website: 
https://packages.gitlab.com/docs#os_distro_version

For example, to force CentOS 6: os=el dist=6 ./script.sh

If you are running a supported OS, please email support@packagecloud.io and report this.

I already tried tried to override OS but still same error.

Any ideas on what i may be doing wrong? and possible solucions

I suggest you use a supported Operating System instead of attempting to install on an unsupported system.

In Requirements | GitLab on the supported OS list ORL is listed has supported.

However, as you can see from your errors above it isn’t working. You would be better utilising CentOS/RHEL or Debian/Ubuntu as they simply just work without having to override the versions.

Searching here you have a couple of options:

  1. Download the rpm directly and install it.
  2. Attempt the override again but use ol/7 instead of el/6 or el/7. Will be a bit hit-and-miss, but to be honest, you will get far much more help and assistance using a natively supported distro, than one that requires a hack to install it.
