Description Dirk Wiesenthal univentionstaff 2018-06-13 14:56:35 CEST
When using
  univention-app install ucsschool
it may be that the version chosen by the command line parser cannot be installed. The installation routine realizes this and aborts the installation.

Yet, this may be regarded as a usability issue because an "impossible" version was chosen in the first place.

In fact, it stops us from releasing the 4.3 Docker Apps to UCS 4.2 because the command line would then find 4.3/ucsschool.

We could filter those App versions. The CLI should probably still allow any App to be found (and eventually be rejected), but the "default App" should not be one from another UCS version.

On a side note, on a UCS 4.2, this works around the issue:
  univention-app install 4.2/ucsschool

The point of this bug is that this workaround should not be necessary.

Note that the UMC module is not affected.
