Bug #18334

Updated by Tom Clegg 7 months ago

In some circumstances, "apt-get update" stops working due to existence of a future debian version.

This can break cmd/arvados-package tests.

$ docker run --rm -it arvados-package-deps-debian:10 bash

Proposed fix: "apt-get --allow-releaseinfo-change "apt update" in scripts. seems to accept that change silently, and succeed.
