Install mongodb in Ubuntu Desktop 18.04

Installing the official MongoDB packages provided by MongoDB didn’t allow the mongod to start the service and returned the following error:

Failed to start mongod.service: Unit mongod.service not found

That is not good, because that would required me to start the mongodb manually:

mongod –dbpath some-path/to-store-mongodb-db-data

Instead, I installed the unofficial mongodb package provided by Ubuntu, and it just works fine when I start the service:

sudo systemctl start mongodb
