Moving away from using Bintray as our software distribution platform

Simon Aronsson, Developer Advocate

As JFrog has decided to sunset Bintray on May 1st 2021, we'll as of now take over the distribution of our binaries ourselves.

This means that the repositories used by many Linux users (Debian/Ubuntu and Fedora/CentOS) to install and update k6 no longer will work as of May 1st.

We are of course very sorry for any trouble this may cause you.

Deleting the Bintray repository

On Debian/Ubuntu you can remove the Bintray repository with:

$ sudo sed -i '/dl\.bintray\.com\/loadimpact\/deb/d' /etc/apt/sources.list
$ sudo apt-key del 379CE192D401AB61
$ sudo apt-get update

And on Fedora/CentOS with:

$ sudo rm /etc/yum.repos.d/bintray-loadimpact-rpm.repo

Installing the new repository

For full instructions on how to install k6 on all major platforms, see our installation guide in the docs.
