installing postgresql 9.3.2 on ubuntu 12.04

follow official guide

$ echo "deb http://apt.postgresql.org/pub/repos/apt/ precise-pgdg main" > /etc/apt/sources.list.d/pgdg.list
$ wget --quiet -O - https://www.postgresql.org/media/keys/ACCC4CF8.asc | sudo apt-key add -
$ sudo apt-get update
$ sudo apt-get install postgresql-9.3 postgresql-contrib-9.3

you should succesfully installing postgresql 9.3.2 on your machine.

but, if you have same problem like me.

The following packages have ummet dependencies:
  postgresql-9.3 :  Depends: postgresql-client-9.3 but is not going to be installed
                    Depends: postgresql-common (>=1.4.2)...
  ...

you should install postgresql-common with specific version like this:

$ sudo apt-get install postgresql-common=151.pgdg12.4+1
$ sudo apt-get install postgresql-9.3 postgresql-contrib-9.3

to find out what the latest specific version is, run:
sudo apt-cache policy postgresql-common

Thank you, it works!

Had to do the same procedure for the package postgresql-client-common. Then did it for postgresql-common and postgres installed fine after that.
Thank you!

Thanks for this. My notes:

I got stuck on the first step (access denied) until I found http://askubuntu.com/questions/185268/permission-denied-etc-apt-sources-list. This worked:

sudo su -c "echo 'deb http://apt.postgresql.org/pub/repos/apt/ precise-pgdg main' > /etc/apt/sources.list.d/pgdg.list"

Not sure if I need postgressql-contrib-9.3. After updating the repository, I went with the command from the official guide (I do need pgadmin):

sudo apt-get install postgresql-9.3 pgadmin3

That command told me that the "extra packages" postgresql-client-common and postgres-common will be installed (among others).
.
This successfully installed the current PostgreSQL, version 9.3.4.
