Phone: FairPhone 3+
I was using version 0.19 of /e/ and I had lots of older versions of the OS in the System updates menu. I cleaned up a little by deleting two or three of them using the dedicated buttons before upgrading to 0.20 (
0.20-20211215151799, Android 10), but kept some versions (and of course I would not delete 0.19 itself since I was using it).
Surprisingly enough, ever since that upgrade, I get an empty list of versions in System updates, with the “No new updates found. To manually check for updates, blahblah” message. Running a manual check does not change this (btw, these checks take several minutes on my phone and I dunno if that’s normal).
Note that in the System updates preferences, I set “Delete updates when installed” to OFF months ago.
I have no current need to roll back to an older version (well… I dunno, I have yet to extensively use the new version and maybe I’ll run into something nasty), but this still surprises me.
- Were the older versions all deleted due to a bug?
- Or maybe a rollback-dedicated menu was created somewhere else in 0.20?
- I also worry that these now-maybe-impossible-to-delete-the-normal-way older version would use up space on my device for ever or something.
- Too early to say, but: I hope this won’t interfere with the discovery, listing and installation of future versions.
