We have just landed a change to ubuntu-release-upgrader that modifies
the message displayed to the user whenever she/he wants to upgrade a
i386 machine to eoan (in the quirks). Previously the message was not
very informative, and with out recent i386-related plans it seemed
like a very bad thing.
The string change in mention can be found below:
if self.arch == "i386":
- logging.error("package arch is i386")
- summary = _("apt architecture is i386")
- msg = _("Upgrades from 18.04 on the i386 "
- "architecture are not supported "
- "at this time.")
+ logging.error("apt architecture is i386")
+ summary = _("Sorry, no more upgrades for this system")
+ msg = _("There will not be any further Ubuntu releases "
+ "for this system's 'i386' architecture.\n\n"
+ "Updates for Ubuntu %s will continue until %s." %
+ (self._from_version, updates_end))
If possible, please adjust the translations and/or documentation
accordingly, if possible/needed.
Apologies for the late notice!
