"sudo apk upgrade" fails on fresh 1.3.0 image

On a fresh copy of the sxmo 1.3.0 image, following the "Upgrading" instructions in the User Guide produces a dependency error.

~ $ sudo apk upgrade
ERROR: unable to select packages:
  uboot-tools (virtual):
    provided by: u-boot-tools
    required by: device-pine64-pinephone-0.21-r0[uboot-tools]

This is trivially dealt with by the following incantation:

~ $ sudo apk add u-boot-tools
OK: 767 MiB in 423 packages

After which the upgrade proceeds without problem:

~ $ sudo apk upgrade
(1/131) Upgrading musl (1.2.2-r1 -> 1.2.2-r2)
(2/131) Upgrading busybox (1.33.0-r2 -> 1.33.0-r4)
Executing busybox-1.33.0-r4.post-upgrade
(3/131) Upgrading alpine-baselayout (3.2.0-r9 -> 3.2.0-r11)
... etc. etc. ...

While most of our users are likely capable of figuring this out, it is an unnecessary barrier to entry, and should be dealt with.

Confirmed after reinstall caused by #214, and 'fixed' in same manner. But I don't understand why apk didn't just install u-boot-tools as part of the first attempt.

~anjan REPORTED NOT_OUR_BUG 3 years ago

I can confirm this bug with my pmboostrap install that I made about 2-3 weeks ago. I recommend checking if pmaports issue tracker has this issue and if not, opening a bug report with postmarketos.

We will not be baking our own images when sxmo arrives in pmos stable (see: #215). So issues like this should be avoided going into the future.
