FYI. I have uploaded this just 13 days ago and now we have more than 100 Downloads on that package that was for testing this PR only?! I'm going to remove this update server now. I hope you all have swiched back to the default update server after using mine else you will never get any update anymore!
Correct. So we changed it so that 2.5.x goes to 3.5.1 then 3.5.1 to 3.6.0 then 3.6.0 to whatever after updating joomla update. It's in the notes here: https://www.joomla.org/announcements/release-news/5666-the-joomla-3-6-1-update.html
It's super horrible. But it's the best we can do :(
hmm can you share the details in a new issue or via mail regardless so I can double check that case. As the updater is a important thing in our system I think we should analyse any errors that comes up even if we decide / found out that it is not a issue we can / need fix or it just popup random.
