Description Dirk Wiesenthal univentionstaff 2018-05-16 14:30:40 CEST
It is simply ignored.

This was a problem during 4.1->4.2 update and it currently is a problem in the Provider Portal.

We have to patch it there which is extremely fragile.

Fixed in
  univention-appcenter 7.0.1-45A~

I removed some dead code. This code was meant to update join scripts when updated on the App Center server. Although we never used it, it was nice to know that this "backup plan" existed in case something went wrong.

--cache-dir and the join script update may have worked before we improved the performance by using zsync. With that change, a lot of things were obsolete in the update.py code.

I created a Bug#47023 for that.

ok, cache dir works, but is useful only in combination with --ucs-version, without --ucs-version all ini files from all UCS versions are stored in the cache dir, is this OK?
Comment 3 Dirk Wiesenthal univentionstaff 2018-05-24 21:02:34 CEST
I'd say, it is okay for now. I just want it to work for the Provider Portal.
Comment 4 Felix Botner univentionstaff 2018-05-25 15:27:45 CEST
OK - univention-app update --cache-dir ...
OK - yaml
