Re: The transition to add support for Python 3.6 is beginning


Hi,

We've fixed many of these now, and I've uploaded the change to make python 3.6 the default version in artful. Next step is getting this to migrate, see http://people.canonical.com/~ubuntu-archive/proposed-migration/artful/update_excuses.html#python3-defaults for that and please help fix anything that is preventing the migration (like whatever it is that breaks botch with python 3.6 as default...)

Cheers,
mwh


If I try to update from 3.5 to 3.6 (python3 & python3-minimal package), it tries to REMOVE following packages:

friendly-recovery
gnome-shell-extension-better-volume
gnome-shell-extension-dashtodock
ubuntu-app-launch
grub-customizer
python3-systemd
gnome-shell-extension-move-clock
ubuntu-system-service
policykit-1-gnome
update-manager
python3-aptdaemon.gtk3widgets

Which basically removes everything. So How do I perform update without reinstalling the iso? Any idea?
