As this systemd plague has also caught Debian, I’m mostly using Devuan for new servers now to have the normal SYSV-Init system I’m used to.
I already wrote an article on how to install MS SQL Server 2017 on Debian Jessie. Now here is a little Tutorial on how to install it on lates Devuan Beowulf:

I assume you are root and fixed the annoying Debian 10 su bug with:

echo "ALWAYS_SET_PATH yes" >/etc/default/su
apt-get install gnupg
wget -qO- | apt-key add -
wget -qO- | tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/mssql-server.list
wget -qO- | tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/mssql-client.list
apt-get update
apt-get install mssql-server
/opt/mssql/bin/mssql-conf setup
# Ignore error about failed systemctl start after setup
vi /etc/init.d/mssql-server

# Insert script from

chmod +x /etc/init.d/mssql-server
update-rc.d mssql-server defaults
/etc/init.d/mssql-server start
apt-get install mssql-tools unixodbc

Pretty straightforward. No more messing around with openssl lib like on Jessie.
