I guess this is because we pinned 4.7.8-2 as curr: some time last year,
I think all of this isn't needed any more, so you can add an empty
override.hint to your upload to supersede that.
OK. So this worked for x86, but for some reason when I upload for x86_64, I get
ERROR: error while reading uploaded arch x86_64 packages from maintainer Andrew
Yeah, that's not a very helpful error message :(
Any idea why? I've rebuilt and uploaded again with the same result.
It seems that the advice I gave was wrong, and that '-override.hint'
works, but an empty 'override.hint' is (silently) considered invalid
(because it uses the same parser as other .hint files, which aren't
expected to be empty)
I've added some output so this failure isn't hidden, and added an item
to improve the hint parser to my calm backlog.
I renamed 'override.hint' to '-override.hint' and set the upload to
retried, which seems to have succeeded.
Sorry for the inconvenience.
