Unable to install Silverblue 29 from Gnome Boxes


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.


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.


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


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