Folks,

I am trying to install amanda client on a Debian wheezy server.

I'm pretty new to this product so I might very well doing something stupid. Here is what I get:

root@myserver ~# apt-get install amanda-client amanda-common 
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree       
Reading state information... Done
The following extra packages will be installed:
  bsd-mailx exim4-base exim4-config exim4-daemon-light libcurl3
  libfile-copy-recursive-perl liblockfile-bin liblockfile1 openbsd-inetd tcpd
  update-inetd
Suggested packages:
  gnuplot dump smbclient mail-reader eximon4 exim4-doc-html exim4-doc-info
  spf-tools-perl swaks
Recommended packages:
  mailx
The following NEW packages will be installed:
  amanda-client amanda-common bsd-mailx exim4-base exim4-config
  exim4-daemon-light libcurl3 libfile-copy-recursive-perl liblockfile-bin
  liblockfile1 openbsd-inetd tcpd update-inetd

Clearly not "hitting" the right repository or something the like.

I have tried to ask in the amanda support forums ( https://forums.zmanda.com/showthread.php?4754-Debian-wheezy-client-install-problem ) but did not generate any interest so far. Hopefully will get more luck here :)

I just tried the install and it went well - no errors.  You might try changing your repos in sources.list.  Here is mine.

# deb cdrom:[Debian GNU/Linux 7.0.0 _Wheezy_ - Official Snapshot amd64 LIVE/INSTALL Binary 20130505-18:46]/ wheezy main

# deb cdrom:[Debian GNU/Linux 7.0.0 _Wheezy_ - Official Snapshot amd64 LIVE/INSTALL Binary 20130505-18:46]/ wheezy main

deb http://mirror.csclub.uwaterloo.ca/debian/ wheezy main contrib non-free
deb-src http://mirror.csclub.uwaterloo.ca/debian/ wheezy main contrib non-free

deb http://security.debian.org/ wheezy/updates main contrib non-free
deb-src http://security.debian.org/ wheezy/updates main contrib non-free

# wheezy-updates, previously known as 'volatile'
