sudo apt-get install sql-client is not working!!

sudo apt-get install sql-client is not working instead "sudo apt reinstall mariadb-server" is working . I believe video needs to be updated

Hi Saurabh

Nice catch! The command is failing because since this video was recorded the default boot disk for Compute Engine VMs has changed from Debian 9 to Debian 10. As you discovered, instead of mysql you now need to specify mariadb

You can still just install the client though with:

sudo apt-get install mariadb-client
