For Debian (we did not do the package split for rpm based
distributions), you should install linstor-controller,
linstor-satellite. The linstor-server package is outdated and should not
be used. Never. Probably we should remove them from the repos. If you
use them, you get behavior you don't want. For example I saw it created
the DB in /opt/..., which should not happen.

We have to update that.

That is what you should do.

Mistake in the blog post. Will fix that.

Forget about the "linstor-server" package. Never ever use it (on Debian
based systems).
