Cannot install recent RPMs on SailfishOS < 4.4.0

Hello colleagues.

Today i charged my Jolla Phone (JP-1301) , SailfishOS and wanted update the Apps on it.

What i saw, that i cant install some packages because of this error:

Error: Subprocess failed. Error: RPM failed: error: unpacking of archive failed: cpio: Bad magic

Maybe someone has an idea?

Has tit something to do with rpm version deprecation ?


See [Release notes] Vanha Rauma - #4 by jovirkku
and Q: 4.5 will switch RPM compression. What does that mean for existing RPMs? - #22 by poetaster

Hence ping the maintainer of the RPM(s) in question to set the RPM compression to a compatible one as denoted in the reply to the message the second link leads to.


@explit: resolved?
