I'm trying to install MariaDB on my Debian 7 development machine and I've hit a problem.

Following this tutorial, and this workaround, I enter this command:

sudo apt-get install mariadb-server-5.5 libmysqlclient18=5.5.30-mariadb1~wheezy

And Debian gives me the following error:

E: Version '5.5.28-mariadb1~wheezy' for 'libmysqlclient18' was not found

I've used this tutorial before for another Debian 7 install, but I never encountered this problem.
