Description Simon de Vlieger 2023-02-18 11:45:53 UTC
Sorry, this one was empty due to ~~bugzilla~~.

On my newly installed F37 IoT the script `` always fails. This is due to UPDATE_PLATFORM_URLS being treated as an array when it's not made to be one. This patch fixes this (but I couldn't find where to submit it):
