Bug Description


The unit test in ubiquity's autopkgtest are failing for focal, jammy, and kinetic. This is caused by a tzdata change and has happened in the past, but in reverse (see bug 1951519). The current failure is:

FAIL: test_city_entry (test_timezone.TimezoneTests)
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/lib/python3/dist-packages/mock/mock.py", line 1330, in patched
    return func(*args, **keywargs)
  File "/tmp/autopkgtest.ThYxjs/build.Pwg/src/tests/test_timezone.py", line 58, in test_city_entry
    self.assertEqual(set(results), set(expected))
AssertionError: Items in the first set but not the second:
('Eastern', 'Canada')
Items in the second set but not the first:
('Eastern', 'Bahamas')

Ran 89 tests in 10.662s

[Test Plan]

Run autopkgtest for ubiquity.

[Where problems could occur]

The patch modifies expected output in a test file, so any impacts would be confined to running the test_city_entry unit test.

Since there won't be any more point releases for focal or kinetic, it's actually not worth fixing there.

Hello Nick, or anyone else affected,

Accepted ubiquity into jammy-proposed. The package will build now and be available at https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/ubiquity/22.04.20 in a few hours, and then in the -proposed repository.

Please help us by testing this new package. See https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Testing/EnableProposed for documentation on how to enable and use -proposed. Your feedback will aid us getting this update out to other Ubuntu users.

If this package fixes the bug for you, please add a comment to this bug, mentioning the version of the package you tested, what testing has been performed on the package and change the tag from verification-needed-jammy to verification-done-jammy. If it does not fix the bug for you, please add a comment stating that, and change the tag to verification-failed-jammy. In either case, without details of your testing we will not be able to proceed.

Further information regarding the verification process can be found at https://wiki.ubuntu.com/QATeam/PerformingSRUVerification . Thank you in advance for helping!

N.B. The updated package will be released to -updates after the bug(s) fixed by this package have been verified and the package has been in -proposed for a minimum of 7 days.

This bug was fixed in the package ubiquity - 22.04.20

ubiquity (22.04.20) jammy; urgency=medium

  * Whenever removing packages, use apt-get autoremove --purge instead of
    apt-get purge so that no-longer-used dependencies are removed together
    with the package in question, and we do not leave behind any packages
    that will be reported as autoremovable later. LP: #1925265.
  * bin/oem-config-remove-gtk uses aptdaemon to remove packages, not
    apt-get. Set the flag to autoremove dependencies here as well.

  [ Nick Rosbrook ]
  * tests: modify test_city_entry to adapt to tzdata update (LP: #2022965)

  [ Shih-Yuan Lee (FourDollars) ]
  * Use dpkg-divert /sbin/start-stop-daemon unconditionally instead of just
    renaming it conditionally. (LP: #1978931)
