Hi,

I don't see it available in 20.04 LTS.
I ran following code in ubuntu:latest docker image.

root@dfdebbb4cce0:/# grep 'VERSION=' /etc/os-release
VERSION="20.04.1 LTS (Focal Fossa)"
root@dfdebbb4cce0:/# apt-get update

P.S.: I'm new Ubuntu user so I'm not really sure what is package work-flow.

Thx

FYI I forgot to mention that I'm looking for the latest version 0.19.

Manfred Hampl suggests this article as an answer to your question:
FAQ #3037: “no rolling release”.

Manfred Hampl (m-hampl) said : #5

In the Ubuntu repositories for release 20.04 (focal) you can only find tini version 0.18.0.

tini version 0.19 will be made available only with Ubuntu 21.04 which will be published next April.

Why do you need version 19?
Eventually it might be possible to manually install the version 19 packages for Ubuntu 21.04 also on Ubuntu 20.04, but this is not a recommended action, especially not for "a new Ubuntu user".

I take care of servers running on Debian but we are partially switching to Ubuntu so yeah I need to get use to it ;)
BTW i can probably build it by myself :shrug:

Thx for replies.

It shouldn't be necessary to build it yourself.
If you have knowledge with Debian, then it should not be hard to try downloading https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+archive/primary/+files/tini_0.19.0-1_amd64.deb and installing it with dpkg -i ...

Hi Manfred,

Yeah i know that it can be done in such way but the package (tini) is used as INIT system for production container.
Therefore I would like to make sure that there aren't any issues.
I'm kind of scary to use packages which were compiled on other releases ...
At the end tini contains statically linked binary therefore it should be safe i guess.
