jeremiah.foster added a comment to T991: [multiple issues] Feedback on "potential freedom issues in PureOS".

I think "blobs" is tricky terminology which might confuse - it confuses me. I prefer talking about 'firmware'. Firmware is stored in Read Only Memory (ROM) as a binary. It usually cannot be changed and it just meant to make the hardware work at all. The FSF says "Firmware that is installed during use is software; firmware that is delivered inside the device and can't be changed is software by nature, but we can treat it as if it were a circuit." This makes firmware closer, or even the same as, hardware. And while all hardware should have free designs, like Purism's, we don't have to reject non-free hardware the way we have to reject non-free software according to the FSF.

I've been informed that it is at least *theoretically* possible to point snapd to a only free "store" https://forum.snapcraft.io/t/external-repositories/1760/7
This might help us not have to remove snapd and then patch and maintain all the software that depends on snap and snapd.

The user writes back saying that they disabled GNOME Software and was unable to stop automatic upgrades. There is no effect of the GNOME Software settings observed. I think the next step on my side is to run strace on GNOME Software and settings to see what is happening (or not happening).

It appears that one *cannot* shut off updates with GNOME Software despite the settings that would imply that this is possible. What needs to be address is apt-daily-upgrade.timer. systemctl status apt-daily-upgrade.timer says;

● apt-daily-upgrade.timer - Daily apt upgrade and clean activities

    Trigger: Thu 2020-12-31 06:28:21 EST; 10h left
   Triggers: ● apt-daily-upgrade.service

This can be disabled which ought to turn off automatic updates. Stop the timer and disable this way;

sudo systemctl stop apt-daily-upgrade.timer
sudo systemctl disable apt-daily-upgrade.timer

This may be caught in a transition from python2.7 to python3 in Debian. python2.7 is approaching end of life and will be deprecated soon. I see that libxml2 is support with another library for python3;

python3-lxml - pythonic binding for the libxml2 and libxslt libraries
