Wayne added a comment to T711: Software & Updates fails to start ("aptsources.distro.NoDistroTemplateException: Error: could not find a distribution template for PureOS/green").

I was commenting on a PureOS forum topic, and I discovered the same error when using Software->left application icon->Software Repositories. My system log file displayed the above stack.

I believe this is the same problem as T660. In my case, this application does not launch. Fortunately, I do not use it very much.

Wayne added a comment to T716: Don't install Kodi by default.

As a user, I support this opinion. I think Kodi was the first thing I ripped off my Librem when I received it. I try to keep only what I need or may need.

I am closing this issue. It appears to be fixed today. Thanks.

Wayne added a comment to T691: Newer Thunderbird version unavailable to APT despite being in repos.

I have not seen Thunderbird version 60 in green since it appeared in buster and PureOS main in November. My understanding was that green was the proper update repository.

Please read my post prior to Jonas's. If @user22492 does not comment by Friday, I'll close this. I was giving him a little time.

Wayne added a comment to T668: apparmor-utils dependencies broken by update to python.

This problem appears to be fixed with the update I made on 1/13/19. python3-libapparmor now has python3 << 3.8 and I am able to install this package. Above, I provided a link for a LibreOffice issue where this package was needed for debugging. That LibreOffice issue seems to also be fixed with this update.

Thank you for this information and assistance. You make a good point on downloading the file. As paranoid as I am, it had not occurred to me, though I was really thinking in terms of editing my own file.

@jeremiah.foster, if the changes to the profile are few, could you post them so we can modify our profiles? Thanks. (And thanks for your post on this issue about the rolling release aspect in the forum topic.)

I do not think there is a problem with either DuckDuckGo, without a more information, or the Purism Forums.

@jonas.smedegaard, if you meant for me to do so, I do not mind opening a new task for the Purism Forums. I think, however, others are better equipped to do so and would have more detailed debug information to write in the comments. But is it necessary? Part of my point was that indications from CanvasBlocker and others are not necessarily showing that anything nefarious is happening, though it may be worth noting.

Wayne added a comment to T666: Update hplip package.

I think the problem in general is that python3 was upgraded to 3.7 and several packages are dependent on python3 being less than 3.7. (Note the "Depends" line above. hplip also shows python3<<3.7 if one runs apt show on it.) I have the same problem with apparmor-utils and opened a new task, not having previously looked at this one. I noticed hplip--I don't use it to my knowledge--was also uninstalled for me on 12/20. This was the same update with python3 going to 3.7. Unfortunately, I am dependent on a Purism-modified package for python3-libapparmor. (The one in buster shows python3 << 3.8 as the dependency.)

If you have not already, you may wish to make certain your system is current. There was a similar issue, but it was fixed in late August. Please refer to https://tracker.pureos.net/T502.

I am glad you isolated the problem. Having been a developer in a previous life, I was only thinking that maybe Mozilla fixed something that might have coincided with the updates.

It appears that 62.0.2 (not 62.0-2) was released today by Mozilla. When it is available in snap, you may want to try it to see if it fixes your problem.

This may be fixed with today's (9/16) update. gnome-screenshot itself was updated to 3.30.0 and appears to work for me.

I did the same and the problem still occurs, but I noticed that gnome-screenshot was not updated in the latest batch. (Now 9/15. Because of Florence, I did not login and update the past couple of days.) On my system, it is still 3.26.0-3.
