Official RPi 3 image targeting edge


#1

Hi

I just flashed a clean ubuntu-core-18-pi3 image and all snaps are on the edge risk, why’s that? The assertion doesn’t target it?

Kind regards

Confirmed that downloading from http://cdimage.ubuntu.com/ubuntu-core/18/20190911/ gives a bunch of edge snaps on the resulting image.

popey@localhost:~$ snap list

This may however be intentional. You’ve downloaded a ‘daily’ build, which is likely not the recommended way to consume Ubuntu Core. If you follow the link to download from https://ubuntu.com/download/iot you should end up at an image in http://cdimage.ubuntu.com/ubuntu-core/18/stable/current/

Using that image (I’m using the 64-bit Intel image in kvm, not Pi, but it still applies) I’ve got stable snaps.

popey@localhost:~$ snap list
Name       Version       Rev   Tracking  Publisher   Notes
core18     20190723      1074  stable    canonical✓  base
pc         18-2          36    18        canonical✓  gadget
pc-kernel  4.15.0-55.60  252   18        canonical✓  kernel
snapd      2.39.2        3646  stable    canonical✓  snapd

So I think this is working as expected.

Thanks for the response, it indeed seems I downloaded a daily build!
