The 3.1.0 dotnet-runtime-3.1 Linux packages say "3.1.0 Preview 3" in their descriptions (Debian + RPM) #3975
Note that like the other issues with 3.1.0 (#3950), the package's description says 3.1.0 Preview 3, but it actually installs a build that is essentially 3.1.0 stable, and it should work fine.
I saw this comment on the blog post calling out the problem: https://devblogs.microsoft.com/dotnet/announcing-net-core-3-1/#comment-4170.
I've tried installing 3.1.0 on Ubuntu 19.04 and CentOS 7, and "3.1.0" is installed on the machine:
However the package description says "3.1.0 Preview 3"
This seems to be the same underlying problem that's caused the other 3.1.0 "Preview 3" issues. When I looked into it earlier, I found there weren't any differences that should matter to Linux users: dotnet/runtime#492 (comment).
This may not be worth fixing until 3.1.1, due to the risk and cost in replacing the bad packages with the correct ones without advancing the patch version.
