Comparing version strings issue #32

sfos-upgrade fails to work on Inoi R7.

[root@Sailfish nemo]#  sfos-upgrade
Notice: The installed version is smaller than the one curr
ently set for SSU (
A possible reason for this is, that the \'sailfish-osupdateservice osupdate-che
ck\' invoked by osupdate-check.service (which is regularly triggered by osupdat
e-check.timer) does more than just checking (observed with SailfishOS 3.0.2 and
earlier): E.g., setting ssu to the recent release version or next stop release
Never mind, the version for SSU will be set correctly again, later on.

Warning from function compare_versions: Version strings "" and "
+omp0.1.3.10" are not comparable!

Oh, version outputs an unexpected format of the version string on your Inoi R7:
AFAIK, the version strings of all SailfishOS versions supplied directly by Jolla (i.e., when a SailfishOS license was bought directly from Jolla) always were in the format a.b.c.d (e.g., but not a.b.c.d+xyze.f.g.h

As I do not have access to an Inoi R7, I do need more information to understand how to handle this properly.

  1. Is this a regular, standard Inoi R7? I.e., with no special SailfishOS version; just what Inoi distributes to regular (i.e. personal) customers?
  2. Have you subscribed to Jolla's "EA (early access)" release channel?
    I even do not know, if that is possible with a third party SailfishOS device (e.g. by Inoi, Intex, Jala), but obviously so as you tried to install SFOS 3.1.0 before its "GA (general availability)" release.
  3. Do you know, if Inoi devices always carried such an "+omp" extension of the version string? ("omp" may mean "Open Mobile Russia".)
  4. a. Do you know, if it is correct to upgrade at the command line using a regular version string on such devices?
    b. Specifically, have you upgraded SailfishOS on your device successfully per ssu re <a.b.c.d> && version dup or sfos-upgrade <a.b.c.d> in the past?
    (I am concerned that their correct usage may be with <a.b.c.d+ompe.f.g.h> on a device as yours.)

@ItsHardToTakeUsername, I posted a RFI at OpenRepos, but nevertheless I still would appreciate feedback from you WRT above questions 1 to 4, plus the output of version, ssu re and ssu s.

"Fixed" per commit b8a7645 from PR #33.

Note that, without the above requested information, this is a "shot in the dark": The issue is resolved at the surface, but the consequences are unknown for devices affected by this issue #32!
