Users are being prompted to upgrade to Fedora 32:
I guess the release metadata was just modified and it's not marked as a devel release? Please fix the F32 release metadata, or take it offline until it can be fixed.
Ideally as soon as you read this, because in the meantime users are going to be upgrading to Fedora 32 months before beta.
Hm, I have org.gnome.software show-upgrade-prerelease setting True -- since I never changed it after I manually set it to test F31 -> F32 upgrade -- and I'm not seeing this myself even after a manual check for updates. Not sure why.
We already fixed this, this morning, but there's probably a cache involved. The issue was that https://admin.fedoraproject.org/pkgdb/api/collections/ was updated to include F32, but at first it was marked as 'Active' not 'Under Development'. @kparal caught it a few minutes later, and @mohanboddu fixed it, but some people will have caught the 'bad' copy in a GNOME Software refresh, I expect.
If you wipe Software's cache of the collections JSON and restart it should go away, I think. I don't think we can fix it any harder at this point, besides just telling people one by one to ignore it...
I put up a blog post on this if anyone wants to link to it, and posted to the Reddit thread.
Yeah, it was 'live' for about 45min. ;(
Metadata Update from @kevin:
- Issue close_status updated to: Fixed
- Issue status updated to: Closed (was: Open)
Looking at that JSON data, is "allow_retire: false" for fedora 32 branch also wrong? I think until a certain point, retiring packages should work in branched, right?
Yes, f32/branched should allow retirement until final freeze.
I've fixed it.
