I finished The mystery of the failing welfare test suite and pushed my work to master. Actually there are still minor things to fix, but I can do this sporadically now. This was for me a week in what I would call the Maigret mode. It’s a mode of working that makes sense only with free software.

Today I learned that Tuxedo recommend to not upgrade Ubuntu from 18.04 to 20.04 on their computers. Wow. That was unexpected. It’s the explanation for the message I have been getting each time I tried to upgrade:

Could not calculate the upgrade. An unresolvable problem occurred while calculating the upgrade. This was likely caused by: Unofficial software packages not provided by Ubuntu. Please use the tool ‘ppa-purge’ from the ppa-purge package to remove software from a Launchpad PPA and try the upgrade again.

Actually that’s okay for me.
