i use linux ubuntu..i try to copy db and type some mysqldump command.. but at terminal show:

The program 'mysqldump' can be found in the following packages:
 * mysql-client-5.0
 * mysql-client-5.1
Try: sudo apt-get install <selected package>
bash: mysqldump: command not found

how to get mysqldump for my pc? i've tried to follow the instruction,but show like below:

Err http://ubuntu-ashisuto.ubuntulinux.jp jaunty/main libnet-daemon-perl 0.43-1
  Could not connect to ubuntu-ashisuto.ubuntulinux.jp:80 (, connection timed out

How about ... doing what was printed on the terminal?

% sudo apt-get install mysql-client-5.1


% sudo apt-get install mysql-client-5.0

(pick the right version based on whats installed on your machine)

For CentOS, RedHat and Fedora install:

sudo yum install mysql
  • 1
    Do you know if this installs the server as well as the client binaries? – slim Jun 15 '18 at 16:48
  • Apparently the package in yum for the server is sudo yum install mysql-server. sudo yum install mysql is fine for client. – Gonzalo Aug 8 '18 at 9:21

Install the mysql client package.

In a terminal try the command sudo apt-get install mysql-client-5.1

(I would have thought that the message you got was clear enough, really.)

Looks like you need to change the mirror ( repository) . Follow the steps mentioned in this tutorial. After changing it , you can use the commands mentioned by @Akira

  • show "No suitable download server was found". – klox Jul 20 '10 at 8:59
  • check your source file which is located at /etc/apt/sources.list and follow this tutorial, if you dont find any mirror under that file. help.ubuntu.com/community/… – ukanth Jul 20 '10 at 10:25
