I thought this was still happening after I fixed the other bug. I must have thought I tested this again but didn't. Looks ok now. Thanks for the update.

I can't reproduce this bug in gNewSense 3 final release. When running the following command in a terminal, the update manager starts and I see no errors.

Also, bug #39457 is fixed. Should we close this bug too?

Update Manager is currently broken, see bug #39457.

That page makes it sound like the file is for cross version upgrades.
is that the case?

When update-manager is launched from the terminal it says "current dist not found in meta-release file", but otherwise works normally. Apparently [1] we need a /var/lib/update-manager/meta-release file.
