#9317 closed defect (duplicate)

/etc/olpc-release has 8.2, should have 8.2.1, messes up Software update

/etc/olpc-release contained 8.2 for release 8.2.0, bug #8622 was filed but it appears it was never fixed for release.

The bug remains in release 8.2.1. As a result bitfrost/update/'s get_release_version() returns "8.2" and get_major_version() returns None. As a result, Software update never attempts to read some_update_url/8.2.1, even though it's supposed to try that before some_update_url/8.2 (see As a result Etoys fails to update to its latest version for release 8.2.1 that's carefully specified in

Fixing /etc/olpc-release to contain 8.2.1 makes all this work.

A workaround is to create http://''some_update_url''/802 , where 802 is the build number of Release 8.2.1. Software update tries to read this before anything else.
