For anyone running into similar issues in Linux Mint 19, I was able to resolve this by temporarily modifying /etc/lsb-release to include the Ubuntu 18.04 information instead, installing the package, and then reverting /etc/lsb-release. The installation script uses this file to determine the OS, but doesn't check for Linux Mint specifically. My /etc/lsb-release file looks like this now, so that I can comment/uncomment as needed. In this case, you'd want to comment out Linux Mint, and uncomment Ubuntu. Set it back to normal when you're done. Hope this helps! $ cat /etc/lsb-release DISTRIB_ID=LinuxMint DISTRIB_RELEASE=19 DISTRIB_CODENAME=tara DISTRIB_DESCRIPTION="Linux Mint 19 Tara" #For installers that check this file for Ubuntu, these entries should work #DISTRIB_ID=Ubuntu #DISTRIB_RELEASE=18.04 #DISTRIB_CODENAME=bionic #DISTRIB_DESCRIPTION="Ubuntu 18.04.1 LTS"
