Installation fails due to useless immediate configuration error when
"Install Third-Party Drivers" is selected
Status in Ubuntu Budgie:
Status in apt package in Ubuntu:
Status in apt source package in Bionic:
Status in apt source package in Focal:
Status in apt source package in Groovy:
Status in apt package in Debian:
Installations that really succeeded would then fail because APT could not immediately configure a package. Which is a pointless way to fail at that point, because everything did work out anyway.
We have two changes that help address this:
* The first one stops immediately configuring multi-arch siblings
(e.g. libc6:i386 when it's configuring libc6:amd64). This was not
necessary, and caused all the libc6:i386 failures here.
* The second change sort of also supersedes the first one: It just
ignores any errors from immediate configuration, relying on the fact
that it's checked and rectified at a later point if there are
unconfigured packages (which is what made all those failures happen
spuriously after having successfully installed everything).
We have one test case in EIPP format in the Debian bug 973305 which was only helped by the second change, not the first one. Run /usr/lib/apt/planners < eipp.log and check there are no errors.
TODO: It's unclear if the APT from proposed installed in the live
session will fix the installer, needs investigation, but would make a
useful test case.
It's imaginable that we missed something somewhere and some path that checked for a set error doesn't check it anymore, and we report success when we hit an error, but it seems unlikely.
Behavior of --simulate changes. This used to fail before as well, and
will now only produce a warning. We don't believe that is a reason of
The groovy SRU is a sync of the 2.1.11 micro release from Debian unstable which also incorporates changes to the documentation: A typo fix, replacing focal with groovy in examples, and minor Dutch manual pages translation updates.
We do not have test cases for the documentation changes, and we do not
consider there to be a huge regression potential. As long as they
build, they should be readable - maybe some words are wrong in the
translation, who knows.
