Unable to install Silverblue 29 from Gnome Boxes


#1

I use Gnome Boxes from Fedora 29 (current version, updated as from writing) and try to install Silverblue. But everytime it fails the automated/express installtion with

Failed to pull from repositoiry: g-io-error-quark: No such branch 'fedora/29/x86_64/workstation' in repostory summary(0)

I have removed the file from ~/Downloads and manual downloaded it, but to no avail. The same error happens every single time.


#2

See https://pagure.io/teamsilverblue/issue/29 - the ref is wrong. It’s been fixed upstream and should trickle down into Fedora over the next few weeks.


#3

So there is no workaround? In other words, the install ISO is not usable unti then… :-/


#4

It looks like @miabbott was able to workaround by hand editing the file. You might be able to do the same.
