Linux version: Acronis 11.7
Backup OS: Ubuntu 16.04

I tried to install ِacronis from my main account I only get the ".i686" version and its not compatible with my OS
I've managed to download the "x86_64" version from the old Acronis account.

when trying to install it I get "please install the rpm utility"

can anybody help me with this issue

Before installing the product on a Linux distribution that does not use RPM, such as Ubuntu, you need to install RPM manually; for example, by running the following command:

  • sudo yum install rpm (Red Hat based distributions)
  • sudo apt-get install rpm (Debian based distributions)
  • sudo zypper install rpm (Suse based distributions)
  • sudo yast install rpm (Suse based distributions)

Please refer to for more details.
